‘Move Over, Rover’…Charlie the Ranch Dog is in charge at Ree Drummond‘s working cattle ranch in Pawhuska,Oklahoma. Ree, also known as The Pioneer Woman, has written this picture book with the help of illustrator Diane deGroat.
Dog stories are a delight. I know already my little friends and ‘tots’ at work will love this picture book. Children of all ages love picture books about animals, especially dogs. Many children have animals and pets, so stories about animals they can relate to are very personal to them.
Charlie the Ranch Dog is a personal story for author Ree Drummond, Charlie is the family friend, companion and “ranch worker”. His place is on the ranch with Ree and family, he has his daily “duties”, naps, eats and more naps. He brings lots of laughs and joy to their home with his spunky friend Suzie.
What’s more is this book is set out west which will be familiar to some children but not all – it is a great picture book with lots of detailed art for children to see and experience a ranch, gardening, farm animals and nature. So as your own little summer adventures start share Charlie the Ranch Dog by Ree Drummond and illustrated by Diane deGroat.
