Summer Reading With Daisy: McDuff Goes To School

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 hope everyone had a fun summer.  Thank you for reading with me!
