This book is a fictional picturebook intended for kindergarten to second grade. The book is about a dog that walks by a priare dog hole and drops his tennis ball. The priare dogs freak out, but eventually begin to pluck the fuzz and do creative things with it. There is one mean priare dog that yells at the rest for doing so, but when they all fall asleep he steals the fuzz. In the end, the mean priare dog gets picked up by an eagle and the rest of the priare dogs save him. I believe this book would be good to use to show students to work together and be nice to each other. The priare dogs that helped the mean priare dogs loooked past his meanness and still helped him. I believe this is a valuable lessons for students to learn. ( )

Book description
Deep, deep down in their underground town, the prairie dogs live in harmony--until a mysterious, fluorescent, very fuzzy thing (otherwise known as a tennis ball) rolls down their hole. When the prairie dogs discover that they can pluck and pull the fuzz into fabulous fashions, their fear quickly turns to curiosity, then delight, then pure greed.
