This book was about a dog named Harry who hated to hear the lady next door sing. She sang so loud it hurt his ears. He tried multiple things to try and get her to sing softer but nothing worked. Harry just got in a lot of trouble for his attempts. Until one night one of his attempts paid off and the lady next door won a singing contest and she won a trip over seas to study music. Harry was so happy that she was leaving so he would not have to hear her sing anymore.

I thought it was a very good book. I believe it could help teach children the importance of patients and also the importance of never giving up. Harry never gave up trying to make the lady stop singing no matter how many times he failed.

An extension of this book could be to have the class draw a picture that resembles a time where they never gave up and it paid off. ( )

I liked this book because it was fun and light hearted with a subtle message. The story is lighthearted in nature with Harry simply attempting to avoid bath time which leads into a fun day of mischief. The reader is able to join in on the fun with Harry through the illustrations of Graham. The bigger message of "Harry the Dirty Dog" is putting off your obligations, chores, etc., may be fun in the moment, but that procrastination just leads to bigger problems. ( )

This is a great transition book for a beginning reader. This is a small chapter book with great illustrations. It is about a dog named Harry who is tired of the lady next door who sings too loudly. Harry is out to solve the neighborhoods problem. Will Harry get in trouble while trying to keep the lady from singing, or will he succeed?
