GO, DOG, GO is certain to turn non-readers into readers with its wit, pace and 75-word vocabulary. The pictures are particularly helpful as clear illustrations of the concepts of number, colour and opposites introduced in the text. 'I can read it all by myself' is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be 'read' even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
P. D. Eastman was an author-illustrator who created many children's books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, he enlisted in the army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit-which was headed by Theodor Geisel, who would eventually become known to the world as Dr. Seuss! After Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series, Eastman published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, he has sold more than 30 million books and become one of the most beloved children's book authors in the world.
