Bliss, Harry. BAILEY, 32 pages. Scholastic Press, 2011. $16.99. Inside cover: “Bailey is not your average dog. In fact, he’s top dog at Champlain Elementary School. And with Bailey around, school has never been so unpredictable- or so much fun. Bailey loves reading, and his best subject is math (and lunch!). But dogs will be dogs, and maybe someday he will remember NOT to eat his homework.” My kids enjoyed this book. There is humor in the regular text, as well as the speech balloons found on every page. We loved Bailey’s everyday moments like trying to determine which color of colar to wear each morning, or getting stuck on the slide at recess. Students will enjoy this book! EL (K-3). ADVISABLE.
