It's Arthur, it's a puppy. It is what it is, an episode. ( )

All of the Arthur books are good books to show younger students how to care and share etc. Very good book! ( )

Opinion: I love "Arthur's New Puppy" as a leisure read for young students. It is a story of an experience shared by many children, getting their first pet. The plot is relatable and heartwarming, while it may not be the most educationally rich book. It has the same lovable characters as the cartoon, namely Arthur, D.W., their parents, Buster, Francine, and Pal. The story also includes plenty of dialogue throughout that defines the characters. You can tell that Arthur is a compassionate character when D.W. says something about Pal not being allowed in the house anymore and Arthur covered the dog's ears and said "you'll hurt his feelings" (Brown 14). There is no clear message, but the closest that I could imagine is that everyone should be given a chance to prove themself. ( )

I enjoyed this book a lot. I think it conveys the message of how much responsibility and work it is to train a puppy in a way that young children would be able to relate to. The book is a book that is more appropriate for students who are in the 3rd grade and up, in term of reading level and ability. Although this book is still considered a picture book, the book has more words on each page, than most of the picture books I've ever read. However, this book is a fun read and the illustrations help to create a picture in the readers mind about how bad the puppy is when Arthur gets him, vs. how well he is at the very end of the story. The overall plot of his story is that Arthur gets a puppy and that it is his responsibility to train the puppy so that he can be left in the house. I think that this is a great topic that most children may be able to relate to in terms of what it takes to own a pet and to be responsible for something. This would definitely be a book I recommend to other people to read. ( )

It talks about how the dog Pal is trained and to be a family member in Authur's house. This book has belonged to a section. ( )
