Chip is an interesting looking dog. He is all black except for a big white circle around his left eye. The story is a familiar one. Kim has moved into a new house and has not yet made any friends. She and her Dad decide to take their dog Chip out for a walk. He bolts out the door and the chase is on. As they travel through the neighborhood they keep asking people if they have seen Chip. Pretty soon the Hot Dog Man, Park Worker and their neighbor Mr. Sanchez are all helping chase down the runaway dog. The good news is that Chip heads straight for his new home and Kim has met a few people in the neighborhood. The short, uncomplicated story is followed by a few pages of activities. The first one raises discussion issues. The second has kids creating a "friend"—a paper plate puppet. Then there is a brief description of the author and illustrator along with photographs of each. The closing spread provides tips to help children become readers and describes why the series is a good choice and lists other titles at this level. Part of the "Green Light Readers" series, a Level 2 book—reading with help with emphasis on short sentences, and simple dialogue. 2004, Harcourt, Ages 5 to 7.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Two easy-to-read stories with bright, engaging illustrations. In the first title, Ann doesn't think she is very good at athletics. During Sports Day, she is encouraged to try her best and ends up having a great time. In the second book, Kim has just moved to the big city and doesn't know anyone. When her dog runs away, she looks for him in her neighborhood and makes some new friends. Both offerings include repetitive phrases as well as short sentences so that even nonreaders can catch on quickly and recite some of the lines. Each title ends with plot-related questions, information about the author and illustrator, and a simple craft.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
