The way the older child (Bella) helps out her little brother (Dave) when he looses Dogger makes me and anyone I've ever given the story to sniffle at the beauty and kindness of text and illustrations.
Face it, when you were little and you miss placed your favorite toy/lovey, you basically went to DEFCON 5 alert status and nothing was right until your lovey was found. Now as a parent, you know if your child loses their lovey, nothing in your house will be settled until it is found and you would do anything ( beg, bribe and possibly liquidate your IRA to make your child happy (and sleep through the night) again. Bella is every mother's heroine.
She teaches the selfless act of helping and giving better than I ever could.
This book is getting harder to find, so buy it right now to help keep it in print. I need more copies for the next round of friends having children.
son. We have both fallen in love with this story of a small
boy who loses his beloved stuffed Dogger, only to find him
sitting on a "For Sale" table at a carnival. But Dave
doesn't have enough money to buy him, so he goes to find
Mom or Dad, or big sister Bella. He and Bella return only
to discover that Dogger has been bought by another little
girl, who won't give him up. Dave cries. The little girl
cries. My son almost cries. Can Bella help? Read the
book and see why, after repeatedly checking this one out
from the library, we had to buy a copy of our own.
Dogger is tops in my opinion, and I have to confess I read it myself whenever I am feeling down ! Shirley Hughes puts the child back in me and for that I thank her most heartedly.
This story deals with the loss and eventual recovery of a favourite toy. This theme has universal appeal to younger readers.<BR
This well-written story begins with concrete details and builds to a dramatic crisis and resolution that any child who's had a "lovey" can identify with. Hughes' artwork is wonderfully rendered, with a particular eye to details that emphasize the warmth and closeness of this family. Most importantly, Bella's open-hearted self-sacrifice epitomizes the kindness that siblings ought to express toward one another. Elder and younger siblings will appreciate this story for different reasons.
