My boy loves Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs

The boy is in kinder this year and reading!!! He loves books, but sometimes the higher-level books can be a little overwhelming. So I try to stick with easy to read books, like Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld.

Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld.

Groovy Joe: Ice Cream & Dinosaurs is the first book in a series about the fun-lovin’ and guitar-strummin’ pup. It features a signature rhyme, repetition, and has a musical writing style with wild and witty illustrations. It’s easy to read in big bold letters and by the end of the book, you’ll come to know Groovy Joe, an unforgettable new character who embodies positivity, creativity, and kindness.

Visit the Groovy Joe website to hear the free downloadable musical performance of this rocking story in English and Spanish. While you’re there, check out “The Groovy Dance,” Joe’s very own disco doggy dance track!”

By Eric Litwin and Tom Lichtenheld
Ages: 3-6


Meet Groovy Joe, a fun-lovin’, guitar-strummin’, doggy-ice-cream-eatin’ pup as he wrangles three hungry dinosaurs and soon has them singing, grooving, and sharing!

Groovy Joe was living the dream.
He had a spoon and tub of doggy ice cream.
And he started to sing:
Love my doggy ice cream! Love my doggy ice cream!

Eric Litwin, author of the bestselling and beloved Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, and bestselling artist Tom Lichtenheld, illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, have created a captivating new canine character who will groove his way into readers’ hearts and have them grooving and giggling all the while. In his debut adventure, Groovy Joe faces three roaring dinosaurs hungry for his doggy ice cream! Oh no! But Joe knows just what to do and soon enough he has them all sharing while moving and singing along.
