Summary

Summary

Tiny and his best friend go everywhere together--and everywhere they go Tiny loves to help his friend. But how will Tiny help if they go someplace where great big dogs aren't allowed? There's nothing to worry about--with his characteristic sweet nature, Tiny still manages to lend a helping hand.Tiny Goes to the Library, written at the very first level of easy-to-reads, is ideal for early readers. The brief sentences, repetitive phrases, and important visual clues within the illustrations help readers along while keeping them entertained. Predictability, simple vocabulary, and colorful, expressive illustrations combine to build children's reading confidence.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1. The young narrator introduces Tiny, his very big dog. Make that enormous. They go everywhere together, but when it's time to go to the library, Tiny must stay outside. Tiny waits patiently while the boy gets a pile of books so big he can't push them all in his wagon. That's where Tiny comes in, ready to pull the wagon home for his friend. The plot is simple, to say the least, but the bright artwork looks for the laughs and finds them. New readers will like the very large Tiny, and find the book easy to read. --Ilene Cooper


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This is the third book about the giant beige dog that follows his young owner everywhere. The best friends' latest adventure takes them (and a little blue bird that appears on every spread) to the library. With card in hand and a red wagon to haul his books home, the boy and his dog rush off enthusiastically, "Time to go!" The child chooses his books while Tiny is forced to wait outside ("Sorry, Tiny. No dogs in the library"). The cooperative pooch helps carry the books to the wagon and to pull the heavy load home. The simple sentences and expressive, cartoonlike, brightly colored illustrations will have beginning readers clamoring for more. The reading level is easier than that in Cynthia Rylant's popular "Henry and Mudge" series (S & S). Tiny is a big charmer.-DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
