10 Little Hot Dogs by John Himmelman is an adorable book featuring a pack of mischievous Dachshunds. The story begins with one lonely Dachshund in search of a playmate. One by one, more playful pups fill the comfy armchair. Will the rambunctious bunch be able to get along and share the chair?
I absolutely love the illustrations! Each Dachshund has a personality all its own. I can totally relate to the Dachshunds’ silly antics. I own a mini double dapple Dachshund that was born without eyes and is completely deaf. She acts just the doxies in the book!
This is a wonderful story for the emergent reader that teaches counting in an easily accessible manner. Children will fall in love with the Dachshund characters and will enjoy counting them throughout the book.
