Bosco, a chocolate Lab, is joined by his friends Pete (another dog) and Pepper (a cat) in this brightly colored counting book. As Bosco, Pete, and Pepper chase a trio of mice on their way to the playground, ladybugs and snails count from one to 10 while also helping to teach color, size, and object recognition. Murphy's (Flip-Up: Shapes) crisp cartoon images and a variety of tabs, pop-ups, and panels should make readers eager to follow Bosco's prompting to "go see what's on the next page." Up to age 3.
