One little hot dog sitting on a chair...
“I want a friend to sit with me!”
Two little hot dogs sitting on a chair...

John Himmelman is the author and illustrator of more than sixty books for children, including Chickens to the Rescue. He lives in Connecticut with his family.From Booklist:
When one little dachshund sitting on a chair proclaims, “I want a friend to sit with me,” a second joins him. With each turn of the page this simple counting book adds another doggy friend until there are 10 hot dogs chewing bones, wagging tails, tugging on socks, tumbling with a shoe, and so on. The whimsical watercolor illustrations show the puppies’ antics and include speech bubbles with onomatopoeic words as the dogs yip, yelp, and arf until finally, exhausted, they all fall fast asleep. One wakes up, jumps off the chair leaving “Nine little hot dogs still fast asleep. Shhhhh . . .” Now the speech bubbles offer up a series of colorful verbs as dogs snore, snuggle, sigh, and snooze. As the dogs tumble one by one off the chair, the playing cycle starts over and the refrain repeats. Coming full circle, one lone hot dog on the chair barks to awaken the nine companions now snoozing on the floor. With many concepts to explore—including addition, subtraction, and new vocabulary—this is a useful title for teachers. Preschool-Grade 1. --Patricia Austin
