Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
Sam, a sheepdog puppy, watches a family move in to the house next door. Soon the new kids, a boy and a girl, invite him over to play. The girl dresses him up like a baby (something I do not think any child has ever done in real life) and feeds him grass and plastic food until Sam, annoyed, leaps out of the pram, jumps and growls at the kids, rips up the baby clothes, chews on the toys, and barks. This is presented as a good thing. The end. The writing is done to help beginning readers, with simple words and repetitive sentences. The illustrations are competent but not interesting. Overall there is nothing wrong with this book but there is nothing particularly right about it, either.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Sam is excited and curious when her owners take her to the seaside. She runs into trouble, however, when she ruins a sandcastle, is bitten by a crab, rolls over a dead fish, etc. Children will relate to the pup's unintentional naughtiness. In the second title, Sam becomes excited when a new family moves in next door. But when the children invite her over, she is disappointed by the game of "house" they want to play with her as the "baby," and she shows them that she prefers such activities as chewing toys. The lively paintings in both books are expressive of the puppy's varied emotions. With their short sentences and easy vocabulary, these titles provide sound beginning-reading practice. Nonreaders will enjoy listening to them.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
