In this small rhyming picture book two dachshunds, a Mum and her little one, look at the good things in life from their perspective. Number one is ‘a happy family’, number two, a heart full of love, number three is playing together and so on until they reach the end of the day when Big Dog bestows upon Little Dog blessing number ten – a kiss goodnight. In between they’ve appreciate the warm sun, the rain, the blue sky, the joy of being alive, good food and more.
Emma Dodd’s illustrates her simple litany to love with in her bold bright style burnishing it with eye-catching glowing golden touches throughout.
The things that this pair appreciate are not confined to canines; humans too young and not so young will count them as blessings.
