Go, Dog, Go, by P.D. Eastman This classic story (1961) is still a favorite of kids today. The dogs in cars are all in a hurry — where are they going? At the end of the story they are having a giant dog party on the top of a tree. If you read this to your child enough, he’ll memorize it – and as he starts to read, it will be one of the first he can read by himself.
