This book was a lot of fun to read. This book tells the story off Jamaica, a young girl who finds a red, sock hat and a stuffed dog in the park. She brings the hat to the lost and found, but keeps the dog, in hopes of it remaining hers. When she is told to return it by her mother, as the child who lost it, may be looking for it. When she was playing at the park the next day, she found the owner of the stuffed dog. In my opinion, the text is what made this book so great, thought the illustrations are beautiful as well. This book teaches readers about ownership, friendship, and responsibility, things that are essential in life. If children are able to see that Jamaica gave the stuffed dog back, as it did not belong to her, they will be able to imagine themselves in similar situations and how they should handle them. Whenever something is found and you are not sure who it belongs to, bring it to the lost and found. Great read! ( )

Book can be used show that characters don’t always face external problems; sometimes characters have internal struggles and problems. Children can relate text to self/prior personal knowledge and problem solving. 1st-3rd grade. Will use questioning strategies about personal experiences.
