Little Dog Lost is one of those books that you know right away will be a favorite. It isn’t very long but it doesn’t have to be. The words and the pictures that are there do all the work. The story is packed with emotion – how can you not feel immediate empathy for the stranded little dog on the cover? How can you not want to know if he gets rescued? Look at the position of his ears. He needs help!
And after all that…the writing is fun to read out loud:
“Can anybody help? Please, help Dog!”
“Don’t be scared dog!”
You will cheer together for Dog and all the people who try to help him as he floats in the ocean alone on a piece of ice. The ending is just what you hope and to make it all even better – the book is based on a real dog. This one is definitely a “read it again!”
