Charlie the Ranch DogBy: Ree Drummond Scholastic RL: 1.5Charlie the Ranch dog is a book written by Ree Drummond and illustrated by Diane deGroat. The story focuses on an older Basset Hound, named Charlie, who takes the reader on a tour of his ranch home. He introduces his best friend Suzie, an energetic Jack Russell terrier, who is quite different from Charlie. Suzie does not have the big paws, droopy eyes, floppy skin, or dangly ears that Charlie has, but this does not stop them from being friends and working on the ranch together. Charlie shows us his daily life of chasing the cow out of the yard, keeping the critters away, and helping ‘mama’ in the garden. He says that work is what he does best and he also helps out by rounding up cattle, repairing fences, and catching fish. Students will also enjoy the humorous inner monologue of Charlie saying how hard he is working and the conflicting illustrations of him playing around and napping.
