This delightful rhyming story takes the reader on a journey with a dog. With the turn of each page, the dog meets a new animal friend of a different color. The one dog meets two gray cats, three green frogs, and so on. Although the rain chases everyone's home, the dog knows he will play with his friends again. Children will want to read this story of friendship over and over again. Shirley J. Farrell, Ph.D.
