"It was a good book. My brother was in it. His name is Tad just like in the book." Says my 5 year old reader; LJ.
I read the first two pages of this book BY MYSELF and mommy almost cried. She's weird.

VERY cute story about how a dog's habit of sniffing stinky things comes in very handy.
First, I'm not in love with this book.

The plot goes something like this: a family goes grocery shopping. They (for some reason) bring their dog along for the trip. The baby wanders off. Peanut, the dog, follows his nose and finds the baby in the nick of time.

Not a great plot there.

BUT I have used this one to help three different children practice reading, and all seemed to love the story. It isn't short enough to seem like a 'baby' book, and they can follow the plot even if they are struggling a

With those deep chocolate brown eyes who wouldn't love Peanut? But Peanut proves he is more than just a handsome face when he rescues one of his human family!

Great illustrations will keep your little one reading page after page!

This is a great book for beginning readers to read. The story is about a dog who is looking for a family member.
