Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Charlie the Ranch Dog helps his family with homeschooling by subtracting animal crackers from the pile during math, listening to books during reading, playing at recess, and eating at snack time. He looks in on the children as they work through their lessons, and he tries to start his own school in the yard with his animal friends. But when the puppy can't focus, the kitten won't count, and the horse tries to eat the books, Charlie decides to take a recess. Though books about homeschooling are scarce, this one is a bit scattered, and some details are unclear without some knowledge of Charlie's previous appearances. The pictures, done in deGroat's signature style, are colorful and detailed, and help to move the story along.-Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampaα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

Mama and the kids are busy with their lessons, so Charlie helps out by creating a school of his own. Suzie, Kitty, and Walter have a LOT to learn, and there's no one better to instruct them than the King of the Ranch! Class is in session, but Charlie's students are acting like a animals. Will Charlie be able to teach his friends ANYTHING?

New York Times Bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Ree Drummond delivers another exciting, entertaining story about Charlie and his new idea, all ready to share with his friends. Charlie may not have too much time on his hands these days for naps, while he plans to start his own school for ranch animals. He has a great deal of planning to do and responsibility as he hopes that his friends will help. Suzie needs to learn her letters, Kitty Kitty needs to practice his math, the ranch horses need to brush up on their history, and Walter needs to learn everything. There is so much organizing to do, will Charlie have enough time, and do all his friends lend a helping hand? Does Charlie have to threaten to take away snacks if they don't pay attention? Who will clean up the mess, before Mama sees it? Is this school business too big of a job for Charlie? This delightful story is extremely funny, the colorful illustrations bring the adorable characters to life, and young children will learn about responsibility. Must Charlie take a nap, before he makes another attempt at running his school? A young child will be inspired by this fun-filled story, and curiosity will have children asking questions as well as being encouraged to read. Ree Drummond adds more fun as she includes a recipe for Charlie's favorite Strawberry Oatmeal Bars on the last page. An entertaining, enjoyable, and educational children's book for ages 4-8. Highly recommended for teachers, parents, and child-care providers!

We were very excited to get this book when it was released. We also live out in the middle of nowhere like the author and homeschool our children. It can be hard to find books that show other children being homeschooled so we jumped to get this one. My children enjoyed the story and the continued antics of Charlie. The pictures were great as always. The story had a few parts that could have flowed better but overall a great book my little ones enjoyed and keep looking at.

I, too, have a beagle named Charlie. I see him in this book. Also, my granddaughter started kindergarten this year. So I got her the book as I knew she could relate to both the dog and her excitement at now being able to go to school. My daughter has had to read her the book so many times she now knows it by heart!!! In fact so does she!!! So I bought another copy and donated it to my granddaughter's school library, showing my granddaughter how fun it is to share her favorite stories with her classmates.

We love how this book is illustrated and am so happy to find that Charlie goes to homeschool. I would say this book is the first of its kind ! The characters are adorable.

It is SO rare to find a book on farming & homeschooling that is positive. I do agree with a couple of the other reviewers that the story is not that strong BUT the fact that it portrays homeschooling as normal & shows the kids learning in a home setting not all sat at desks is HUGE. Well illustrated - kids will still enjoy it. Charlie the dog thinks that starting his own school among the animals is going to be easy. Hah! Not so! Just as all us homeschooling parents know - teaching our children requires a lot of work on our part. Charlie soon finds that out when the animals get into all sorts of mischief!

I gave this book 5 stars as even with a weaker story I still believe it deserves a place on the bookshelf.

Going to try the recipe too as the Strawberry Oatmeal bars look absolutely delicious :)

More About the Author

Hi! I'm Ree Drummond, also known as The Pioneer Woman. After marrying a cattle rancher, moving to the country, and having babies for ten years, I started a blog on a whim in 2006. There, I shared stories from my childhood, photos of my children growing up in the country, and eventually, recipes I cooked for my family. This eventually led to my first cookbook, which was released in 2009, and two cookbooks since. I love writing about food (and taking photos of food!) both in my cookbooks and on my website. I also love eating the food I write about!

I have enjoyed writing a series of children's picture books based on my very lethargic and malodorous Basset Hound named Charlie. "Charlie the Ranch Dog" has been a sweet experience for me.

My Food Network show, "The Pioneer Woman," premiered in 2011 and it's still being filmed on the Oklahoma ranch I share with my husband and four children.
