Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Emma, her parents, and their scruffy black dog, Bo, head to the lake for a family vacation. Once there, the pup interferes with all of the youngster's activities, and Emma becomes so exasperated that she tells him, "Go jump in the lake." After unsuccessfully trying to appease her, Bo runs away to look for a new friend and has a series of mild mishaps. When the child realizes that her cherished pet is missing, the family searches for him everywhere. Before long, Emma and Bo are reunited. This charming story is perfect for beginning readers. The chapters are short and the language is simple and natural, similar to the way young children think and speak. The colorful illustrations delightfully portray the characters. A solid choice.-Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A kid and a big, drooly dog share easy-reader adventures. Sound familiar? In this case, Emma and her dog Bo swim, frolic and cloud-watch during the family's lakeside vacation. When ice cream-loving Bo grabs and devours her Popsicle, Emma angrily shouts, "Go jump in the lake! . . . get lost! Scram!" In a sweetly doggy chapter of his own, Bo obliges, moving from tail-dragging sadness through a series of exuberant misadventures around and in the lake, finally lying down roadside, bee-stung and lost. When Emma and her parents search for Bo, the text supplies appropriate repetition as they retrace Bo's path. After the happy reunion, the family stops for celebratory ice-cream cones. "By-mistake-on-purpose," Emma drops a scoop for Bo. Kelley's ink-and-watercolor pictures perfectly suit this plainly told tale, aptly reflecting the action and supplying much of the humor. Nothing new, but still, a woofy treat. (Easy reader. 5-7)
