The Little Dog in the Middle of the Road by Sharon P. Stanley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.
