Editorial Reviews

The family is perplexed. Things are missing. Pat couldn't find her frog, Mom couldn't find her pin. Where have these things gone? Their dog Rip heads for the yard and starts digging and then the mystery is solved. Kids who take a good look at the cover will know the answer before they get to the end of the book. The illustrations in this early reader feature an African-American family. The introduction describes the levels in the "Green Light Reader" series and provides some helpful tips to those working with kids. There is also a very brief blurb and photo of the illustrator. A Level 1 book. 2000, Harcourt, Ages 5 to 7.
