Summary: "I'll Teach my Dog 100 Words" is a short story about a boy and his plan to teach his dog 100 words. The boy is encouraged by many people in his town who are very impressed with his dog and it's ability to perform so many tricks. It turns out, however, the boy wishes to teach his dog 100 words next year.
Review: This is a "Bright and Early Book", used to symbolize that it would be a good starting point for young readers. There are many sight words and rhymes throughout the book that will provide good practice for children. ( )

Simply marvelous!: This is a classic. Funny lines, great rhymes and rhythm, engaging pictures, and an appealing main character. If a parent loves to read it as much as a toddler loves to hear it, that's the sign of a great book.

"I'll Teach My Dog 100 Words" by Michael Frith is a book about a person that is going to teach their dog all kinds of new tricks. The tricks range from normal things that dogs do such as digging a hole, barking, and begging to silly things that dogs would never do such as painting, brushing bears, and cleaning.
This was one of my favorite books as a child. I loved seeing the silly pictures of the dog painting the underwear on the clothesline. This book is fantastic for teaching students the basics of reading. It doesn't have any made-up words in it, and all the words are relatively easy for younger students to sound out the words.
You could use this book in the classroom to have students make a list of what they would teach their dog to do. The students could also pick their favorite trick the person is going to teach their dog in the book, and have them draw the dog doing the trick.
