JUVENILE FICTION / Concepts / Words


Who's at the door? Doodle the Science Poodle introduces her diverse, blended family, which includes an aardvark, three turtles, eight llamas, and a whole bunch of cats. Colorful illustrations combine lovable animals and hilarious commentary for a simple introduction to counting and diversity. Join in the fun and discover who's behind the door with this unlikely family of comical creatures.


"Bright, colorful digital illustrations and giant numbers let readers count each of the animals in Doodle’s family. A note about the science of arithmetic connects the counting story to STEM learning. A fun way to start kids learning and counting; have goodies around for them to count, like toys, blocks, or toes (yours, theirs, the dog’s). Absolute fun for readalouds and counting songs." - Rosemary Kiladitis, Mom Read It
