"El perro vagabundo tiene su origen en 1983 cuando Marc Simont conoció la conmovedora historia de su amiga Reiko Sassa sobre la adopción de un perro vagabundo. Tardó más de quince años en encontrar la manera de compartir el relato y de capturar la esencia de este hermoso libro ilustrado, merecedor del Caldecott Honor Book en el año 2001".

This book for primary aged students is about this family that finds this stray dog. They take it in for the night and the kids are super excited to have the dog. But, the next day they find a lost dog poster of the dog they found. So they returned the dog but then got one in the end. It is a super cute book that kids can enjoy and have fun reading.

I think this is a book I could read to 2nd and third graders, but on their own it might be a challenge. I enjoyed reading this book because sometimes we forget that we all need a friend sometimes and I think the puppy in this story was a friend to the children. I would 100% recommend this book as a story of hope and a story of family and that new additions to the family are a positive thing.

Reading because I *loved* the original Father of the Bride/Father's Little Dividend movies. I'm picturing Spencer Tracy as Mr. Robbins, of course.

***

Really funny. Similar tone to the narration of Father of the Bride. Mid-century humor is so great!
