Book Review

Reviewed by: Tonimarie Rivicci

It is Available in Paperback


Age Level: Grades 3-5


The content in this book is appropriate for these
grade levels because it helps them to relate to the little
boy in the book. Some of the children in class will have a strong desire to own a pet and because of some reason will not be able to have one. They will be able to feel for the character in this book who is not allowed to have the pet dog that he dreams about. This book will also teach children that they can do great things. The young boy in the story both convinces his parents to allow him to have a pet dog and rescues a puppy from its abusive owner. This book is appropriate for slow readers because there were not too many unfamiliar words used. This book was an altogether wonderful book that every child should enjoy reading.
