"Henry and Mudge and the Bedtime Thumps" is a great book for early readers. It tells a humorous and relatable tale about a boy and his dog. The vocabulary in this story is controlled, which will help beginning readers read the book independently. As the story progresses, there is a clear theme of cause and effect within the story. For example, Henry is worried about Mudge meeting his grandma for the first time (cause). Therefore, he begins to chew his fingernails (effect). Mudge knocks over everything in the house (cause), so he is sent outside (effect). As the story goes on, I would point out to my students the different events that occurring like Mudge knocking everything over. I will then have them predict what the effect of that might be. Then at the end of the story, I will ask them questions like, "Why did Mudge get sent outside?" to see if they can identify the cause. As a follow-up activity, I could have students create their own cause and effect situations. I think this story could be a very useful teaching tool for young readers. ( )

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. ( )

This is a sweet little book about the friendship and love between a boy and his dog. It is part of a series, but I still expected it to be stand alone, since it's not really a chapter book (it does have short "sections" though). It's not that I couldn't follow alone, I just thought there may be some info about Henry or Mudge that was given in a previous book that I was missing out on by reading the 9th book first. But it still was good, it had a good message that even if you do worry and those worries come true, they can be fixed. ( )
