What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Charlie the Ranch Dog trades in nap time for game time in this sporty adventure by Ree Drummond—#1 New York Times bestselling author, Food Network star, and The Pioneer Woman herself. With expressive illustrations by Diane deGroat, a new delicious recipe from Ree Drummond, and the hilarious antics of Charlie, this picture book is a slam dunk! Life on the ranch means lots of time outside, either helping out with the cattle or tossing around a ball with the family. From football to soccer to basketball, Charlie’s ready to jump into the game and take his team to victory. But Charlie’s favorite part of sports comes after the winning goal when everyone breaks for a postgame meal. He may be more of a benchwarmer when it comes to athletics, but Charlie will always be the MVP of dinnertime!

This was a cute story about a farm dog that likes to be a part of each farm activity. He works and then he plays. It was fun to see the different farm and also the different types of ball they’d play as well. Very cute story and fun illustrations.
