Bad Dog – Mike Boldt

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s impossible not to dream of warm cocoa, sing-a-longs, and sweet time with family. You know what else we think of? Puppies! At one point or another, we all wanted a puppy for Christmas.

This story is about a little girl who finally got a dog, and it’s the WORST dog ever!
She won’t play fetch, or go on walks, and she never comes when you call her. Talk about being disappointed – this isn’t at all what dogs are supposed to be like! What’s a little girl supposed to do with a “bad dog?” Find out in Mike Boldt’s book!

Questions to ask your kiddos:
***Can you think of a time when something didn’t go the way you wanted it to?
***How did that make you feel? Hmm..maybe disappointed?
***Why was the little girl disappointed?
***Sometimes, things don’t happen the way we hope, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! What do you think the little girl learned in this story?
