On the Road
On the Road by Lucy Nolan is a fun story about a dog and her owner which is told from the perspective of the dog, Down Girl. She describes her life with her owner, Rruff, and her dog friend, Sit. Down Girl especially loves to ride in the car to go on different adventures. This is a beginning chapter book that would be perfect for second grade students and even some third graders. I love the humor and just getting to see the world from a dog's point of view. Any dog lover will certainly understand and enjoy it. It could also be a great teaching tool in the classroom. On the Road is filled with opportunities to teach inferencing skills and point of view. Kids will love it. I would highly recommend it. This book is on the 2007-2008 Texas Bluebonnet List.
