Review: Go, Dog. Go!

Go, Dog. Go!
Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was more complex, and it had a sense of danger about it that I didn’t truly understand as a young reader. When I finally did read the book, I thought it was really cool. I felt like I accomplished something, and I couldn’t understand what had made me apprehensive about reading it in the first place.
