Beginning Reader Review of Dixie by Grace Gilman

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Emma and her puppy, Dixie, are inseparable after-school friends.

But when Emma starts preparing for her class's production of The Wizard of Oz, Dixie feels left out. She wants to romp and play, but all Emma wants to do is memorize her lines in peace and quiet. Dixie does not understand.

Dixie, the mischievous puppy who is trying to be good, will be embraced by beginning readers."

My Review: This is a good level one book for beginning readers. The sentences are a little more complex but still contain a lot of familiar words. The story is interesting and may be relatable to some children. The images don't always prompt the more difficult words one the page but are still fun and lend to the entertainment of the book.
My Rating: This was a fun book for a level one reader but you should definitely assist with the reading, there will be some words that they will need help with. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.
