Format: Paperback
We read aloud every night to our children now ages 8, 10 and 12. We've covered many of the "classic" children's chapter books and series, but this was by far the best read-aloud we have ever done. The book is a series of vignettes or short stories about the life of Lad, a real-life dog, who lived in NJ at the beginning of the last century. The vocabulary is difficult, but my kids never had any trouble with understanding the stories. Lad has become the standard by which we judge all other read-alouds. None can beat it: not Narnia, not Harry Potter, not Charlotte's Web, not the Penderwicks, not Henry Huggins. Lad rules.

Written in 1919, the story is quaint but heartwarming. It is also touchingly wholesome. I am currently reading it to a ten-year-old student who has reading issues. The story has captivated him. Although a few details are a touch gruesome for my taste, they are relevant to the story line. I loved it as a child and I am loving it as an adult.

I first read this book almost 60 years ago on the recommendation of the librarian at the downtown Seattle Library. I was 10 years old then. I purchased this book for my granddaughter to read. She hasn't discovered it in her bookcase yet, but when she does, I know that she will love it just as I did those many years ago. I read all of the books that Albert Payson Terhune wrote and loved everyone of them, but this one was the first. I read it and reread it many times as a young boy.

I've loved this book since I first found it in the school library in 1976. I still believe it's the best dog book ever written. I now have a Shetland sheepdog (looks like a small collie) and I named him Lad. However, I must mention that in the description of this book it says it was published in 1901. That's impossible. It was published for the first time in 1919. Lad lived to be 16 and had already passed away when it was first published in 1919. Like I said, 1901 is impossible.
