It's impressive when children's books show that adults can admit their errors and change. This is one of my all time favorite animal books.
Junket is an Airedale terrier who lives on a farm with a nice farming family and a decent collection of livestock including a pony, a cat, geese, and a cow, and a hired hand who didn't mind being managed by a dog. He is a very exact dog with a fondness for schedules and things being "just so." If Junket had a family crest, just so would be his motto. And he got his name from his habit of daily "junketing" about the farm to make sure everything was exactly as it should be, exactly just so.

But Jun
Read aloud to the family. A fun story about a city family moving to a farm and being taught the ways of the farm by the dog Junket. There is a bit of repetition in the middle as the family acquires different animals.
My copy is falling apart! I loved this book as a child and have reread it more than once as an adult. Love it! Love Junkets attitude and view of his world. Childhood favorite.
