Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Charlie introduces himself as the Ranch Dog and announces that things are busy around the ol’ homestead. Following a snooze in the pasture and another in the barn, Charlie enters the house. He discovers Mama home schooling her four children. He joins in, subtracting animal crackers during math and listening to a story during reading. Then comes recess and then Charlie’s favorite: snack time. This gives Charlie an idea: he will start a school for the farm animals. His attempts are totally unsuccessful. The animals would rather play with the crackers, eat the books, and take naps. It does not take long for Charlie to decide that taking a nap is just the thing for him. In the beginning the tone is reminiscent of Hank the Cow Dog (depicted in a series of the same name and written by John R. Erickson), but the humor is not quite as effective. The illustrations feature appealing animals, especially the chipmunk that appears frequently without mention, but they are somewhat confusing. Apparently there is another dog (Walter?) that is similar in appearance to Charlie. Because of this, it is not always clear whether Charlie is appearing several places in vignettes on a page or whether Walter is also present. A recipe for Strawberry Oatmeal Bars is included on the last page of the book, which seems rather incongruous, as there is no reference to these anywhere in the story. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.; Ages 4 to 6.

K-Gr 2—Charlie the Ranch Dog helps his family with homeschooling by subtracting animal crackers from the pile during math, listening to books during reading, playing at recess, and eating at snack time. He looks in on the children as they work through their lessons, and he tries to start his own school in the yard with his animal friends. But when the puppy can't focus, the kitten won't count, and the horse tries to eat the books, Charlie decides to take a recess. Though books about homeschooling are scarce, this one is a bit scattered, and some details are unclear without some knowledge of Charlie's previous appearances. The pictures, done in deGroat's signature style, are colorful and detailed, and help to move the story along.—Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa
