From a parent review: “If you are incapable of letting loose and hamming it up for your child, DON’T buy this book! In the course of this book you are required to make a bunch of different dog noises. Actually, as you look at the dogs, and at how the different barks are spelled, your barks will surely evolve into very different barks, and this will leave your children howling with laughter.” ~ Sandi Jones
From a parent review: “All of Boynton’s books are a big hit with my toddler. She asks me to read them over and over. This one, like all the others, is really cute. I also like that it rhymes, which makes the opposites easier to remember.” ~ edufan
