Taylor Pearson Text Set “DOGS” Annotated Bibliography 1. Eastman, P. D. Go Dog Go! New York: Random House, 1961. Go Dog Go! is a humorous fiction/fantasy written in rhyming text. It touches on culture and diversity through all the different dogs and their fulfilled activities. The dogs who are all shapes, sizes, and colors-black, white, yellow, green, blue, pink, are the main characters who zoom around in cars, ride in Ferris wheels, and generally have a great time while making their way to the big tree. As the dogs happily make their way to the party they illustrate simple concepts such as compare and contrast, and cause and effect. 2. Freymann, Saxton, and Joost Elffers. Dog Food. New York: Scholastic, 2001. You do not have to be a dog lover to love Dog Food. Saxton takes many favorite dog phrases and turns them into fruit and vegetable sculptures. He wittily reworks familiar dog phrases for a whole new level of humor and meaning. Dog figures carved out of different fruits and vegetables “act out” different phrases. When you combine the pepper puppies, Cauliflower Canines, Banana Beagles and all the other ingredients you get Dog Food . 3. Joy, Angela, and Nicola Slater. My Dog. United States: Little Tiger Press, 2005. When Joe’s mother takes him to pick out a dog, she suggests many different ones through wonderful rhythmic text.
