Dog story recommendations ...

Does anyone have any dog story recommendations for a third grader? Picture books or chapter books for that level?

The Captians Dog - Lewis and Clark's dog for history.

Top Dog - Luka's story. A war story. Heart wrenching.

Hank the Cowdog is always a favorite.

These are above a 3rd grade reading level.

Thank you so much! Looking into these I think I'd like to read Top Dog myself!!

re: Dog story recommendations ...

There are many juvenile novels about dogs. :-)

Of course there's "Lassie Come-Home." "Hurry Home, Candy" is quite good, although it has some sad parts (full disclosure: it makes me cry at the end. A good cry, but still...) Albert Payson Terhune wrote many books about dogs, although they may be above your dc's reading level. Oh, and don't forget "The Incredible Journey."

I suggest a book that contains all the pictures of the different categories (hunting, sporting, herding) and breeds of dogs. My kids have spent hours looking at this type of book and we have used as a reference material when we see a dog and aren't sure what it is. It sure is fun to have laying around the house (agh!).

The ultimate encyclopedia of dogs, dog breeds & dog care.

I second what pp said! We have that dog encyclopedia and my kids have spent hours looking at it!

Also, check out the book Tornado.

My daughter loved this book :-)

Also, Five True Dog Stories is really good.

And I can't forget to mention Scout!
