Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—Alliteration is key in this energetic book. Readers are introduced to the Ellis family members, whose names all begin with an E (Elaine, Emily, Elmer, etc.), including Ed, the Ellis's beloved dog. Ed notices that all of the Ellis children shine at something (soccer, math, ballet); however, he has difficulty discovering where his talent lies. He tries some naughty skills like "breaking stuff" and "losing things," but he never seems as accomplished as the rest of the family. His sadness dissipates after he is reminded by the children how much he excels at welcoming them home and warming their feet as they gather together at the end of the day. This is a diverse family with calming expressions that are illustrated well through the use of soft crayons and pencils, surrounded by gentle brushstrokes of light green and muted yellow. School librarians may enjoy reading this aloud, as it can spark wonderful discussions regarding pets, a favorite topic of children and adults alike. VERDICT A dog lover's delight, this sweet and simple title will be an excellent addition for most school and public libraries.—Maria Alegre, The Dalton School, New York City
