When I was a little girl back in the 1940s my parents used to read to me every evening.
Little Dog in the Middle of the Road is a newly published book by Sharon Stanley that reminds me of the story books I heard when I was a kid.
I especially enjoyed the way the author repeats the sentence, "And so it was" throughout the book.
The book tells the story of a little dog who is left with a stranger when his "person" goes away for a few days. The dog escapes, gets lost, and doesn't know it's dangerous to sit in the middle of the road.
What will happen to him?
I don't want to give away the plot, but I will say the story has a comforting ending. Any child who has or wants a pet will enjoy hearing about the Little Dog in the Middle of the Road.
And Deidre Carr's illustrations add to the enjoyment.
