I'm Going to Read (Level 2): Good Dog, Rover

by Sanford Hoffman
 
What a "tail" of puppy love. Andy and Amy just can't wait: today, they're going to adopt a dog. But what kind should they choose? He wants a big one; she wants it small. She wants a white dog; he wants a black. Will they find a pet that can make everyone happy--Mom and Dad too? Maybe Rover will be just right.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Each of these beginning readers has a controlled vocabulary (up to 100 words), with the words listed across the tops of the pages where they first appear. In Rover, each member of the family wants to adopt a different kind of dog, but they finally find one that pleases them all. Hoffman's average-quality cartoons support the text, but do little to enhance it. Harry's Bath tells of a boy who cannot get into the tub because of all the other animals in it. Chwast's colored-ink drawings are somewhat flat, but kids will enjoy them. In Silly Pig, the porker buys a wig, drives a rig, digs, and dances a jig. Then he is tired and goes home. This book includes more repetition and rhyming than the other two. Rader's characters are outlined in a heavy bold line and have more appeal than the weak story. Higher-quality beginning readers are in plentiful supply.-Sharon R. Pearce, Chippewa Elementary School, Bensenville, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
