Daisy and I had a former student over to catch up before school started. She and Daisy raced around the yard for awhile, then she caught Lizzie, a baby lizard!

It's hard to believe, but it's back to school time in our house! My last book for the summer is McDuff Goes To School by Rosemary Wells and illustrated by Susan Jeffers. McDuff is the Westie and Marie is the Scottie.
Before I get to the story, I just had to show you this page. Terriers are awesome and so cute!
McDuff gets a new neighbor from France! She even barks in French!
So, this page is a little worrisome. Marie got in trouble for getting on the fancy furniture. I sleep on the couch all the time. Now, if this was a picture of Marie getting on the counter, I get it. I know I'm not supposed to be on the counter, but I still do it. But the comfy couch? Yikes. Marie's parents decided she had to go to school to learn how to behave. McDuff's parents thought he should go as well.
The pups had a lot of homework to do from their school. They even had to take a final!
A fun part of this book is the Glossary at the end. They show what McDuff and Marie learned in French (with the pronunciation) and then defined in English.

I know how much you all love strawberries, which is why I picked this book! I even brought it to a real strawberry patch to tell you all about it. The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR is by Don and Audrey Wood. They are amazing authors and illustrators.
So, this little mouse finds the most perfect and juicy strawberry.
He knows all about the BIG HUNGRY BEAR and decides to protect this ripe strawberry.
He tries to hide it and chain it up so the bear can't get it.
The little mouse thinks even eating a little bit will prevent the bear from eating the perfect strawberry!
Well, I'm not going to tell you the twist with the mouse, strawberry, and the bear. It's the best part of the story and I don't want to spoil it for you! I will say this book makes you want to eat your very own red ripe strawberry after you finish it!
