OK kiddies, today we’re going to learn about sled dogs and mushing! In this delightful and energetic counting book, the story centers on preparing a sled dog team for a race. Children count paws, ears, and noses as the dogs eagerly await the starting gun. A sled dog glossary helps little ones learn mushing terminology, the parts of the rigging, and sled dog facts. The cheerful text is excellent for reading aloud and makes for a wonderful way to get children excited about counting. Michael Bania’s charming illustrations exude the happy canine enthusiasm for which Alaskan huskies are known.
