Booklist Review

Charlie the ranch dog returns, and this time, he gets a taste of being a big brother to an orphaned calf. At first, he's annoyed that he must wait until the calf's needs are met before he can be fed and unhappy he has to give up his blanket and sleep on the floor. Then he is awakened by the best thing of all the loving lick of a younger sibling. Charlie's emotions range from compassion, disbelief, and jealousy to pure joy. This should ring true with children experiencing the ups and downs of a new sibling. DeGroat's watercolor illustrations capture both the expansive landscape of rural Oklahoma and the up-close feelings.--Edmundson, Martha Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Charlie the Ranch Dog is concerned. His family has brought a calf inside the house. He knows that "Mama and the kids" will give the calf lots of tender loving care, but when he feels they have forgotten to attend to his needs, he ends his day dreaming about "a time when a dog could lie on his own bed. A time when a dog could get a bath and a belly rub from time to time. A time before this silly ol' calf ever showed up." Charlie's quiet tolerance is rewarded by morning, though. He receives a thank-you lick on the head from the reinvigorated calf. Charlie's enviousness is easy to understand when looking at deGroat's realistic illustrations. His longing for attention is reflected in his facial features and body language. The watercolor-over-digital-art paintings make readers feel at home. Drummond includes a child-friendly recipe for Egg-in-a-Hole at the back of the book.- Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada (c) Copyright 2014.
