Personal Reaction: This is such a cute transitional book. I love how in the first story Bertie comes up with ideas on how to get Mr. Muckleberg and his mean dog to like him. He even reads books on friendship. I think we could all learn from Bertie, and I'd love to get an ice cream sundae in the end as well haha!

Read Aloud: This would be a good read aloud for first through third grade. I think that they would really appreciate this book and find it funny. It is 80 pages long and you would most li
Simple short stories great for transitional readers about a young boy who will do most anything for a hot fudge sundae--make friends, learn saxophone, and bowl a strike.

There is lots of humor and accomplishment is this three chapter early reader. Bertie retrieves his ball from mean old man Muckleberg, learns to play the saxiphone and achieves a life long dream of bowling a strike. After each success he also enjoys a hot fudge sundae. A fine, goal oriented early reader that encourages children to overcome impediments. Colloquial language, repetition, and some fanciful episodes frame the stories which showcase friendship and determination.
