This is the perfect read aloud book for dachshund lovers and their children. The story combines unique sounding words with counting that reinforces many objects parents want to cover with young readers. It is also something that a child will want to conquer on their own. As a dachshund owner, the author did dachshunds proud, capturing their spirit and life. I have a whole collection of dachshund related readers and this one will proudly join classics like Pretzel and Wiener Wolf!
