This chapter book very simple but is good for beginners. The first chapter is The Snow Glory which is about Henry and his dog Mudge playing in his backyard enjoying the sunshine when they notice a blue flower. Henry picks it for his mom and it sits nicely on their kitchen table. henry goes outside to pick more blue flowers but Mudge eats them and Henry gets upset. The second chapter is called Puddle Trouble which is about Henry and Mudge finding a big puddle and splashing in it all day. His father finds them and at first seems angry but then jumps in the big puddle with them. The third chapter is called The Kittens and is about Henry and Mudge's neighbor cat having kittens and how they have to take care of it. This is a good realistic fiction chapter book for beginning readers because it have big font and is easy to follow due to the pictures in the book. ( )

Early Chapter Book: Realistic Fiction
Age Appropriateness: primary
Media: watercolors
Review: This book is about a boy named Henry and his dog named Mudge. They awake one morning and it is Spring time and they anxiously await to go outside. When they go outside they find their first snow glory flower. Henry wants to pick the flower to keep it but his moms says he shouldn't so he does not. Henry's spring is filled with him and Mudge playing in puddles on rainy days, finding their first snow glory, and lastly watching Henry's neighbors five kittens when they are outside.
Critique: This book is a good early chapter realistic fiction book because Henry and Mudge go play in puddles, look at flowers, and look out for his neighbors kittens. That is all stuff a young boy can do and that he can bring his dog with as well. What makes it fiction is that Henry would not be able to take his big dog outside on his own, and without his parents knowing. Also, dogs do not tend to eat flowers, they eat grass but not flowers.

I have a lot of respect for Henry's mom. In some ways I want to be her, with a big porch & yard & trees, and long dresses and bare feet - but I don't want a huge slobbery dog, thank you. ( )
