These Charlie the Ranch dog books are so great! They give 'city' children and insight to what living on a farm is about. These books are an easy read so a beginning reader could learn to read on them as well.

Charlie the dog wants to go out with his Mama and help rangle cows. A calf is stuck so Charlie tries to help. But he gets stuck as well. But his mama comes and helps get them both out and they are both okay; even after a bath!

The girls and I have discovered a new favorite dog in Children's Literature, along with Biscuit, Spot, and Clifford.

His name is Charlie and he lives, on a working cattle ranch, in Australia!

Charlie's heart, is as big as the dog bowl, containing his favorite treat - bacon.

In this book, Charlie tries to rescue, Abigail, a calf who is stuck in a mud hole. He accomplishes his mission, with the help of his Mama!

Charlie likes to brag! "I am the greatest cattle dog this ranch has ever seen!" "There's

This book is about Charlie the Ranch Dog. He goes in mud and then he gets stuck in the mud and then he chased the little cow and then he ran with the horse and he got all muddy up, all gooey and he was not barking and then they got the flurry towel ro wrap him up and Charlie was chasing a cow.

Charlie was chasing the cow that's how he got stuck in the mud. Charlie got stuck in the mud because he was chasing the cow. Charlie was chasing the cow because Abigail was not in the herd. A cattle is a he
Bookaday #47. Level one reader with engaging illustrations and easy vocabulary, although intended audience may not understand the phrase “calm, cool, and collected.” Look for the chipmunk friend in all but 3 spreads.

My children absolutely adore this book. Reading literature is so important to the development of a child's mind, and I cannot think of thing I would rather do then sit down to read to them in the evenings. Imagination and growth are so vital in those so young.

This book teaches the lesson that even in stressful situations you need to keep calm. This is a great book to get young kids into reading because the story is very fun and fast pace. It also, has talking animals and kids love talking animals.

Charlie the Ranch Dog is a new favorite with the kiddos. This set is a bit lower level, level I, than the big picture books.

Overall an ok book to read, but too many figures of speech that make it hard for my 4.5 year old.

Age appropriate story arch. Doesn't explain the cattle dog concept enough for the emphasis placed on (would an inner city kid get it? Probably not).
