Home is Where the Heart Is (Good Dog #1)
Springtime has arrived at the Davis Family Farm! Spring showers lead to muddy hijinks for a young pup named Bo. But when Bo loses his dog tag, he gets serious and enlists all of his barnyard pals to help him find it. From horse stalls to chicken coops to grazing fields and beyond, Bo’s adventure takes him all over the farm, introducing a cast of friends and frenemies.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Good Dog chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
I can't say enough about how adorable the black and white pencil illustrations are! Bo's facial expressions are animated and priceless, and his eyes convey so much emotion!The barnyard comes to life with all of the classic Old MacDonald animals. Combined with the smaller trim size (5.5" x 7.5") and the bright covers, I can see these books becoming quite the favorite of an animal obsessed youngster.
This is a great US version of farm life, similar to the UK Jasmine Green series, but more from the dog's perspective. Give to readers who enjoy a light mystery like Robert Quackenbush's Henry the Duck or Sherlock Chick.
