Bosco, a playful chocolate Lab, invites young readers to join him and his friends in this preschool pop-up book. Meet Pepper the cat and Pete the dog as they join Bosco on his morning romp through the neighborhood. Additional background critters teach colors, basic counting from one to ten, simple concepts, and object recognition.
Simple pop-ups, pull-tabs, and lift-the-flaps add to the interactive fun, bold and colorful artwork adds to the merriment, and a die-cut cover immediately invites readers to open the book and join right in.
