Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Michael and his dog do everything together, from playing catch to taking baths. Naturally, Michael just assumes Cookie will accompany him throughout his first day at Robin Hill School, but his mother tells him otherwise. Michael is crushed until his sympathetic teacher comments, "If Cookie came to school- she would belong to everyone." Michael, unsure that he wants to share his pup, sends the animal home with his mother. And that is where she is when he gets home, waiting to greet her special owner. This beginning reader has short sentences, picture clues, and ample white space. But more than that, it tells a real story to which children will relate. The cartoon illustrations show the boy's sadness and joy quite well, and young children will take delight in reading this easy story on their own.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
