andquot;These stories about a puppy searching for his strengths will bring smiles of recognition to the beginning-reader set.andquot; andmdash;School Library Journal
Join Buster the very shy dog as he discovers his self-worth and self-confidence in a house full of more outgoing canine and feline characters. Newly formatted for Green Light Readers Level 3, this edition of Busterand#160;features two easy-to-read stories from the original book. In the first, a wary Buster reaches out to befriend a girl who seems sad and lonely at a birthday party. In the second, Buster, insecure about his inability to catch a ball, uncovers a winning talent all his own!
Young Joe the Frog does all he can to avoid bed time in this amusing Level 1 Green Light Reader that's perfect for beginning readers...and their bleary-eyed babysitters and parents.
Buster is not a small dog, but he feels like a small dog. He feels small at crowded birthday parties. He feels small when he tries to catch balls or chase wild animals. He especially feels small next to Phoebe, a bold dog who is an ace ballcatcher, popular at parties, and seemingly unafraid of anything. In these three stories Buster discovers his self-worth and self-confidence and makes friends along the way. Beginning readers will relate to Buster's fears and his successes and will relish in their very own triumph of completing a chapter book.
"This froggy folly makes the grade."
--School Library Journal
