Overview

Madeline Finn does NOT like to read. But she DOES want a gold star from her teacher. But, stars are for good readers. Stars are for understanding words, and for saying them out loud.
Fortunately, Madeline Finn meets Bonnie, a library dog. Reading out loud to Bonnie isn’t so bad; when Madeline Finn gets stuck, Bonnie doesn’t mind. As it turns out, it’s fun to read when you’re not afraid of making mistakes. Bonnie teaches Madeline Finn that it’s okay to go slow. And to keep trying.
With endearing illustrations, Lisa Papp brings an inspiring and comforting book to all new readers who just need a little confidence to overcome their fears.

Today, Lisa is still making up stories and painting pictures, only now, they fill the pages of children’s books. She has received awards for both her writing and illustration, including a 2011 NAPPA Honor Award, 2012 Storytelling Award, and the 2013 PA Keystone to Reading Award. Lisa lives in Pennsylvania, with her husband, Robert, also an artist, and three wildly creative cats— to whom she does read.

Lisa Papp has written an excellent story for children, especially those who are faced with reading difficulties! I presented this story to the class of first graders I read to each week and they loved it. Not only did they love the story, they expressed opinions that showed they related to Madeline's difficulties! I have had numerous questions from them concerning which libraries in our area have "Read to the Dog" programs. Thankfully, I was able to tell them our County Library System does, in fact, have such programs. I am so looking forward to Lisa Papp's next book concerning Madeline Finn and her dog friends.
