This story is about a dog named Charlie who has a ranch and claims he is the boss around the ranch. Charlie runs into the kitchen for his daily breakfast of bacon and it is gone. He even goes to take a nap and the visitor dog is in his bed. It is evident that the visitor dog took the bacon! He yells at the dog and then the dog runs outside upset and crying. Charlie feels bad and takes the dog some of his dinner and shares it with him.

Personal Reaction: This is a good story for young children to read and listen too. The moral of the story is to learn how to share, even with strangers. It is a great book to read to children starting school for the first time.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Ask the class why it is important to share.
2. Have the class get into groups and each draw out things that they do not mind sharing with others.

The pictures make this book really come alive. The words are small and manageable. So many young kids pretend they are the family pet. These kids will relate to this story because he talks about his human mom, dad and sister as if having a dog as a sibling is the way things are. In many families this IS the way things are so dog lovers might appreciate this as well.

I felt this was a very sweet story. Any animal loving kid would enjoy this sweet story.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0061996556, Hardcover)

Meet Charlie.

He's a ranch dog. Breakfast is his life, especially when bacon is involved. Charlie has dangly ears, floppy skin, and big fat paws. And he loves living in the country. That's because he works like a dog...fixing fences, gardening, and helping his family out on the range.

Yep, it's all work, all the time for Charlie the ranch dog. In fact, he's probably working right now...


A ranch dog's work is never done!

Come along as Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, introduces us to her beloved short-legged pioneer dog named Charlie.

Whew. That was a close call. It’s a good thing I decided to stay home.
