Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
A little boy who thinks that he doesn't like dogs meets up with a persistent little pooch that wants desperately to play. As hard as he tries, the boy just can't seem to get rid of the lovable mutt and he finds out, soon enough, that maybe he doesn't want the dog to go away after all. Easy to read text and amusing illustrations make this another favorite "I Can Read Book."
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2A little boy doesn't like dogs until a friendly, white pup with black spots convinces him to reconsider his opinion. The dog does tricks, runs, and plays until the child takes him home. First published 30 years ago, the book is now in a "My First I Can Read" format. New, engaging, watercolor illustrations reflect the simple spirit of a youngster finding a new friend in a persistent canine. With its controlled vocabulary, this will be a surefire hit with emergent readers, a group always in need of a quality story.Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
