School Library Journal

Another great addition to the series by Meisel (See Me Run and See Me Dig), again featuring the always-popular antics of a dog. The story begins (and ends) with the animated pup barking up a tree. The title page creates interest and draws readers in with the image of an unhappy dog coming inside. The rest of the story depicts the pup’s reactions to various encounters inside and out. Spreads full of bright colors and cartoonish illustrations clearly portray the dog’s feelings through his actions and expressions. The simple text includes merely 10 words. Each sentence begins with, “I see a...” and ends with the latest entry into the dog’s field of vision, including a cat, bird, fly, bee, mice, a boy, and—most frustratingly and more than once—a squirrel. The repetition in the simple text and sentence structure will build confidence for early readers. VERDICT A great choice for early readers that will have wide appeal and could be read individually or with a group. Recommended for general purchase.—Theresa Muraski, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Library
