Everyone thinks Ike is a bad dog, so Mrs. LaRue puts him in obedience school. Ike hates obedience school and starts writing Mrs. LaRue letters to convince her to get him out.
This picture book is a great book for introducing inferences. Students can use the pictures to infer what obedience school is really like compared to how Ike describes it. The pictures show what Ike is imagining, but also what is really happening, so students have lots of support to make inferences. Then they can use the text to support their inferences to see if they were correct.
It is a cute book with great pictures. The advanced words will also help build kids' vocabularies.
