Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meagan Albright
Librarians tend to be fans of books that encourage pre-literacy or literacy skills and offer suggestions for getting children ready to read. The inside cover of this book contains a special note to parents and teachers that offers suggestions for "giving the children in your live a lasting love of reading." These suggestions include excellent ideas, such as visiting the library regularly and reading to your child every day. There is a surprising lack of repetition in a book intended for toddlers. While repetition is not a mandatory aspect of books for young readers, repeating words is a very effective method of encouraging literacy in a fun and potentially playful manner. Also, the print is small and that, along with the font choice, makes it difficult to share with an audience. Many of the pictures are also very small, so this book would definitely not make a good read aloud. The plot is engaging and the pictures, though tiny, are simple and clear, so this book would be best for one-on-one reading. This book is recommended for purchase for public libraries and school media centers that need to build their Holiday / St. Patrick's Day collection. Reviewer: Meagan Albright
School Library Journal

PreS- Tucker adds a St. Patrick's Day story to his previous Christmas and Halloween adventures. At first, March 17 isn't so lucky for the perky white pooch who must endure a walk in the rain-BEFORE breakfast-and a black cat hisses at him. So he decides to roll in a bed of four-leaf clovers to change his fortune. A leprechaun who is watching works his magic, and Tucker finds himself the happy recipient of a falling scoop of ice cream, homemade dog biscuits, and a box of dog toys. And best of all-no bath tonight! This story doesn't have much of a plot, but it's hard not to like this cheerful pup who is determined to have a good day. Simple, bright pictures illustrate the canine's playful activities and will appeal to young children. Introduce fans of Clifford the Big Red Dog to this little charmer.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

    Lucky Tucker

    Though Tucker the dog starts his day unlucky he has many adventures that change that. This is a very cute story and was loved by the children it was read to. Though they received it after St. Patrick's day they read it over and over. This will be pulled out next year for some fun St. Patrick's day reading.
