Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. Hazen skillfully conveys the feelings and questions a little boy has about his aging dog, acknowledging thoughts with which young readers can identify. The boy's older sister explains why Digby cannot run and fetch the way he did when she was little. She tells him that he is still loyal to the family and deserves their love and friendship. Through these conversations, the child is made aware of the changing life cycles and learns respect for the value of each phase. Phillips-Duke's bright, colorful, animated illustrations of the African-American family energize the very easy text and are sure to appeal to beginning readers. Digby provides a vehicle for young children to broaden their experiences; as such, it warrants a place in easy-reader collections.?Amelia Kalin, Valley Cottage Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 1. Like many easy readers, this I Can Read Book is also for sharing with younger children. A boy wants the family dog to play ball, but his big sister explains that Digby is too old now to run and catch. She says that when she was small, Digby could roll over and shake and jump a stick, but now Digby can do other things and watch them play and be their friend. The story of aging and of time passing is told in very simple conversation--a question from him, an explanation from her--and the bright contemporary pictures show the bond between the African American brother and sister and their beloved pet. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
