This book is a wonderful example of contemporary realistic fiction. Not many people would automatically think about this kind of book, a book about ordinary non magical animals as being contemporary, but becuase it is something that can happen today, it is. This is a wonderful book to work on inferrencing because there are several places where you can do some predicting.

This shows the ways that we can be generous and caring for one another. Through the use of animals it made it relate-able in the sense that it is animals, and they are generally liked by most people, but also didn't target children or people in general. ( )

A storm comes in and all the animals want to share the doghouse with Rover. The artist uses water colors to makes the pages appear to be moving with the rain. Super cute book!

Rover is alone in his dog house wishing he was out playing. But then, it starts to storm. Suddenly, Rover's dog house is very full, sending Rover out in the weather alone.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152019790, Hardcover)

It's raining cats and dogs! Good thing Rover is snuggled safe and dry inside his doghouse--until, one by one, a soggy menagerie of creatures shows up looking for a cozy place to sit out the storm. But who's the very unwelcome surprise visitor? Skunk, of course. Suddenly that doghouse isn't quite so crowded after all!
