About the Author

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, “mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children’s music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold) and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum (over 1 million copies sold). Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning “One Shoe Blues” starring B.B. King, “Alligator Stroll” starring Josh Turner, and “Tyrannosaurus Funk” (animated) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

Doggies 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 21 reviews.

There are ten dogs in this book. (And one cat.) Each dog (and cat) has its own way of making lots of noise. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to make a public nuisance of yourself by BARKING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS! AROOFF! AROOFF! AROOFF!That really just about sums it up. If you think you can't manage it - don't buy the book. But if you think you *can*, you're bound to have great fun with it. I promise :)Just... don't expect your kids to learn their numbers this way. They'll get too caught up with the barking!

This is hilarious, and makes me hoarse each time I try to bark my way through it. Makes Liam pay strict attention.

What a great book for sounds, and also teaching kids about dogs and animals. Makes individuality a subtle lesson, as well as self-expression for everyone being different. Boynton always puts in a surprise, which is great. Mrrowr.

Cute, but my boys sort of found it hard to sit through all the barking. The first dog barks once, the second dog twice, and so on up to 10. Each dog has a different bark and the pictures are adorable of course.

A counting book with dogs, with funny pictures of many different kinds of dogs, and their different barks. Our kids loved this, but the parents found that if you really tried to do all the different bark voices you'd wear out your voice! Good fun for toddlers and preschoolers.

This book is good for teaching counting, is fun to read, and maybe more fun for me to read than for my kid to listen to. :)

My grandson loves doggies. This book delights him. He points to the doggies and shouts doggie! He is just learning to talk and one of his best words is "doggies". He also pants like a dog when he sees the pictures.

This book didn't really tell a story. It was just counting. My son doesn't go back to this one over and over like Boynton's other books.

My 16-month old thinks this is the best book ever written. I really have to agree. It's so perfect. Boynton brings all the qualities of a successful longer book into board book form: great characters, a cute story (there are 10 dogs!), and a few twists and turns along the way (sometimes they don't bark). I read this over and over and over, and neither of us has gotten tired of it yet. I highly recommend this board book for babies and small children!

Another Sandra Boynton winner. You can't help but laugh with each new bark. Babies love the animation of the reader and it always becomes a favorite at least with my grandchildren it was.

I have used this book with two little boys around six-months old. They love it and it continued to be a favorite until around two-years old for one little one. The other is just seven-months old now. He fusses to have it read and reread and reread and reread and.......

Leave it to Sandra Boynton to come up with counting book that has you barking and howling like a just have to! My grand-daughter loves when I read it. The rest of the family just thinks I'm nuts. Each page adds a dog that, of course, barks in a different you have to bark for each dog every time you turn the page! Have fun!

I like the dog illustrations. My baby loves dogs so she'll look at this book over and over. It adds counting to ten, and all the dogs are funny, but it's not the funnest book to read aloud.

My 18 month old son loves this book! He laughs at the many different sounds that dogs make. He brings the book to all our visitors to hear their version as well. Needless to say, we read it alot.

This book is a lot of fun. My 15 month old son will get into a mood and want me to read it so much that sometimes we have to hide it for a little while! MY favorite page...Six quiet dogs!
Guest More than 1 year ago
This book is the greatest! Not only is it my toddlers favorite, but everytime I read it to him, our dog (German Shephard) comes and sits with us and starts howling. Before you know it, the three of us are all howling together. We probably read this book at least four or five times a week and it is enjoyed by all, including the dog!
