KIRKUS REVIEW

Featuring lots of short words, thematic repetition and paired antonyms, Guy’s latest is great for short read-alouds with preschoolers as well as first reading experiences for kindergartners and first graders. Youngsters will enjoy matching the descriptive words (wide/narrow, ancho/estrecho, etc.) to the appropriate dogs and will flip pages hurriedly to join the young protagonist in finding the answer to the repeated hook, “¿Adónde van? Where are they going?” Because the text is fully bilingual, with both Spanish and English texts side by side, speakers of either or both languages will be able to point to and recognize the basic words. Glick’s illustrations use strong black outlines and slightly muted colors to create zesty, busy scenes of dogs playing on the slides at school, being groomed and even joining a bird to look down from a roof to the street below. Short, breezy and full of activity. (Picture book. 2-6)
