Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This easy reader for children ages 7 and 8 is the story of a dog named Jackson who is looking for a home. He lives in an animal shelter, but wants to have a home and a family who will love and take care of him. But Jackson is having trouble finding a home because things just are not working out. Jackson does not make a good impression on a man who comes to see him. The man takes him for a walk, but is unhappy to be dragged as Jackson chases after a squirrel. Then, a woman comes to take him for a walk, but Jackson splashes around in a puddle. He is too messy for the woman, and she brings him back to the kennel. When another man comes to visit and takes him for a walk, Jackson barks and barks; again, he is brought back to the kennel. Then, Sam and Sara come to take Jackson for a walk. They love it when Jackson runs through the leaves and chases a squirrel. They think he is a lot of fun, and they want him. Jackson now has a real home and he is happy. Author Neveloff has written a charming book that will interest beginning readers. The illustrations are nicely done and complement the text. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
