I can't believe there are so few reviews of this marvelous book! I bought it on a trip to Tucson when L was 3. I wanted a book that was about life in the desert and this was close. He wasn't quite ready for it then, but by the time he was 4, we were reading it regularly. It's the story of a poor Mexican family living in a mining village. Their son wants a dog, but his parents can't afford it, so his mother suggests a prairie dog. The book changes perspective back and forth between the boy and the prairie dog, each of whom believes he is "taming" the other. What makes this book fabulous is the sing-song, almost-rhyming poetry of it. It took me a couple of times to get the hang of reading it aloud, but once I did, I loved it! Also, the illustrations by the incomparable Garth Williams are both tender and saucy. If you want to encourage a love for language, nature, patience, and the art of giving love, then run right out and get this book. I know others say it's beyond first graders, but I think if you read it right, they will be mesmerized.
