Dog is covered with a rainbow of crud on his journey through town. This is a great book to teach kids about counting and colors.

The fun and colorful illustrations lend themselves to a variety of activities for colors as well as counting. Another delightful book from Emma Dodd!

Dog has a very colorful adventure that lasts all day long. This is a great way to introduce colours and counting to young children.

A great book to teach both colors and counting. If you can make a dog out of felt it's even better! I have one, and the storytime kids loved suggesting where the next dot should go. :-)

This is such a fun book! It's especially fun if you have a flannel dog or dog cutout and a bunch of coloured spots for the kids to place on the dog as you read the story.

This is a great story to use to make a flannelboard - it is also fun to say the colors and count the spots in Spanis
