Snow Dog, Go Dog by Deborah Heiligman
Tinka is a golden retriever who loves a good romp in the snow. She frolics a bit too far from home and gets lost, but ends up safe and sound by the end of this rhyming tale. This book is fun to read aloud, with a bouncy rhythm and great repetition. Look at the bright illustrations and talk about what Tinka is doing in the snow. Ask your child what he likes to do on a snowy day. Have your child point to the words that repeat on each page, and talk about the words that sound alike. Make a list together of other words that sound like “dog.” Talking about words and the sounds letters make helps your child get ready to read!
