In this If You Give . . . series title, giving a dog a donut results in him asking for a glass of apple juice. But when he asks for more juice and there is none, he’ll have to make his own. An apple reminds him of a baseball, which leads to a baseball game, and so begins a domino effect of associations—until the whole story comes full circle. The peppy, simple narrative is read-aloud friendly, and the cheery cartoonish illustrations depict an animated brown-and-white dog and his indulgent boy companion. Kids will enjoy this entertaining entry in a popular series. Preschool-Grade 2. --Shelle Rosenfeld

This was a pathetic attempt at writing and illustrating a children's book. It was just plain lazy and most of the drawings were on plain white pages with little to no effort. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Jennifer J.
great book- disappointed in the condition it came in. Cover was creased and so were a couple of pages. I expected a crisp, new copy. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Jill A. Guilford
