New Book Released
¿CUANTOS PERROS? HOW MANY DOGS?
by Bam Schildkraut
¿Cuantos Perros? How Many Dogs? is a read-out-loud romp through numbers 1-10 with a pack of playful pooches.
Simple verses use the English and Spanish words for numbers. The short rhymes literally roll off the tongue
(can you say perros?) and children quickly learn to count and woof aloud with each verse. The rhymes and
illustrations focus on positive interactions between dogs and people. From the wraparound cover to the last page,
the illustrations of the 55 dogs and one cat are vivid, active and humorous. Children will delight in finding
the friendly little cat hidden in every illustration as they count their way through the book.
For more information on the book, visit the author's website at www.bamschildkraut.com.

The purpose of the plate is twofold: to educate people about the pet
overpopulation issue facing New Mexico and to help fund spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in New Mexico. A portion of the
price of each license plate will be distributed to fund local spay and neuter programs.
The Spay/Neuter Pet Care License Plate must be ordered from the Motor Vehicle Department. Order forms can be obtained at any MVD office or downloaded from their website here.
