Dixie and the Good Deeds by Grace Gilman –ADVISABLE

Gilman, Grace Dixie and the Good Deeds 32 pgs. Turtleback Books, 2013. $12.20.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Emma decides to volunteer in her community. She can’t decide which place to spend her time at, so she solves it by volunteering for everything! Dixie, her dog, comes along, but is so how causing trouble at every turn! But there is one place Dixie can’t go –the Magic Show! But when Emma makes a mess of things, will Dixie be able to make things up to her and help her out somehow?
This was an adorable Early Reader book. I think students will love the mischief that Dixie creates and adults will love the sense of excited that Emma has for volunteering! The cover artwork isn't great, but inside the same illustrations are much better!
