I'm Giving a Book Away - grandma's bookshelf - Charlie the Ranch Dog!

I'm very happy to share a new book with you . . . this is a delightful story, perfect for sharing with a grandchild!

Charlie the Ranch DogCharlie the Ranch Dog
Author - Ree Drummond
Illustrator - Diane deGroat
Publisher - HarperCollins
Ages - 4-8

Charlie is a basset hound . . . this is enough reason for me to love this story . . . and a ranch dog! Charlie has large paws, droopy eyes, floppy skin and "big dangly ears"! He is "hard working" . . . or at least thinks he is. This story shows a "typical" day for Charlie . . . and what he does when the cows try to eat Mama's garden. Children are sure to cheer for Charlie . . . this is a book which is bound to be well-read! For anyone who has, or has had, a basset hound, this book will bring a smile to your face!

As you read this book to and with your grandchildren talk with them about Charlie and Suzie and how they help on the ranch. Ask your grandchildren what they do to help around their home. Lead them in thanking God for creating dogs and for making them so they can be helpful!

I'm happy to say HarperCollins sent me Charlie the Ranch Dog for review and an extra copy for me to give away! If you have "liked" grandma's cookie jar using the tab in the "find us on facebook" box ON THE BLOG, then you are entered in my drawing - which will be on August 2nd! If you have not "liked" this blog yet, please take a moment to do so and you will be entered in my drawing. It is this simple! Please share this blog with the people you know so they can join in the fun and be in my give-away's, too!
