Kathleen Karr (Children's Literature)
P.D. Eastman's 1961 classic, Go, Dog. Go --originally a "Beginner Book"--has been reincarnated as an interactive book in the "Bright and Early Playtime" line. Presumably it is still all in the family since Peter Anthony Eastman is credited with new illustrations. Although this edition has been spiffed up with flaps and wheels and pullout tabs, not to mention one modest pop-up, it is still the same simple story about color. Black dogs, white dogs, blue dogs, and green dogs frolic with pink dogs and purple dogs (through the help of a transparency sheet). Best of all, Eastman's signature little green bird also makes an appearance. The binding and pages are sturdy enough for another generation or two of toddlers to enjoy Eastman's exuberance. 2004, Random House, $8.99. Ages 2 to 5.

Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D. (Children's Literature)
This 50th Anniversary Edition brings back a beloved beginning reader for another generation to enjoy. Beginning with a single word, Dog and gradually adding 74 additional words, the text encourages children to increase their reading vocabulary. There is no plot, but plenty of action, as dogs are shown driving cars, riding roller coasters, rowing boats, swimming, riding a Ferris wheel, playing baseball, and skiing. A yellow dog is critical of a pink dog s hat in several scenes. There is a happy resolution in the end when a whole lot of dogs gather at the top of a big tree for a boisterous party. The concept of antonyms occurs throughout: The green dog is up. The yellow dog is down. A dog over the water. A dog under the water. The traffic light changes from green to red to green as the dogs go and stop and go. The comical illustrations add to the fun. 2010 (orig. 1961), Random House, $8.99. Ages 4 to 8.
