True Blue is a great book about a girl and her missing dog. When she goes to look for Blue, he is taking care of another dog who has been shot. The girl, blue, and Molasses make their way back home where they are all taken care of. This is a great book for readers who have outgrown picture books but aren't quite ready for chapter books. This book is longer with small chapters, but still has some pictures. Overall a great story!
This book is in an in-between phase for those readers not ready to fully exit the realm of picture books, and also not quite ready for full-on chapter books. Cute story about a girl finding her missing dog, an making a friend along the way. Would definitely read in a primary classroom.
