Reviews - What do customers think about Too Many Dogs (Step into Reading)?
Daughter Loves this book Apr 27, 2008
I bought this book for my three year old daughter. She loves us to read books to her and I wanted to get a book that I thought it would keep her attention. The sentences are simple for the beginner or pre-readers. The illustrations are great. My daughter loves talking about the different doggies she sees in the book.
Not a good read for kids. Sep 25, 2007
Even though this book was fun for ME too read to my son. I really don't encourage this for begginer readers. Not alot of sight words and only brought on fustration. Other wise all the "scroufy" dogs are cute.
Excellent book Sep 16, 2007
My kids absolutely LOVE this book. I have had to buy several copies since it's paperback and they end up ruining the books by reading them so much. It reads well, has excellent illustrations, and is perfect for young children. The only downfall is that it's paperback. The next copy I buy I'm planning on laminating.
Great May 7, 2007
Child is able to figure out most of the words by looking at the pictures. Better than some of the other books.
horrible word selection for beginners May 2, 2007
This book had terrible word selection for a level 1 book for the beginning reader. Here is a sampling of words in the book: Sprinkly, wrinkly, scratchy, patchy, lappy, licky, howly, growly. Seriously - many of the words were not even real words! This was very frustrating as a parent watching my early reader try to sound out words that are not even real. Does NOT instill confidence! Does NOT enhance word recognition! It was a nice topic (dogs), and short sentences (2-4 words) - but when half the words are pseudo-words, it really misses the point of introductory reading books. I would NOT recommend this book to an early reader in the least.
