My thoughts: This is a cute little book that has a little dog disobeying his owner and finding himself where he doesn't want to be.
The illustrations are cute and the wording is easy to understand for small readers. I think the message for children is one that can't be reiterated enough. The little dog was bored, so he broke the rules. He found himself lost and away from home. I can picture conversations between parents and children about safety and the importance of rules.
Great message in a cute book.
Although Sharon Stanley has been writing for years, it was only after her youngest son graduated high school that she got serious about it.
She joined the SCBWI and began to write with an eye to publish children’s picture books. S
haron published her first print book, The Little Dog in the Middle of the Road last winter with Silver Tongue Press, and has several others under contract.
She lives with 5 chickens, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 sons and one husband on a working farm in Virginia, where she endeavors to “live creatively…with cows.”
