Go Away, Dog (My First I Can Read Book Series) by Joan L. Nodset, Crosby N. Bonsall

Dog be gone!

The big old dog wants to play. Can a little boy make him go away?'Go away, dog,' the little boy says. 'I don't like dogs.' But the dog does not go away. Instead, it brings the boy a stick and wants to run races with him. Will an afternoon's play change the
boy's mind? Reformatted for emergent readers and with all-new full-color illustrations, Joan Nodset's beloved tale of a reluctant dog lover is as lively and engaging as ever.

Author Biography: Joan L. Nodset is the pen name of children's book veteran Joan Lexau, whose many titles include the I Can Read Books Don't Be My Valentine and The Rooftop Mystery, both illustrated by Syd Hoff. Ms. Lexau lives in Otisville, NY.

Sweet story. This book has been around since 1963 (not this illustrated version though). Fortunately enough children read it through until the end to have made it a favorite. The adults who find it "negative" either don't read it all the way to the satisfying conclusion or just don't understand childhood apprehension and ultimate acceptance as well as their 3 year old does.

My son started Kindegarten this year and I was looking to find books that were both easy and challenging for him to read. Any of the "I can read" books and the Level 1 etc.. books are great for kids that are just beginning to Learn to read. We have dogs so my son enjoyed this book.
