Childrens - Henry and Mudge

Henry and Mudge and the careful cousin: The thirteenth book of their adventures (The Henry and Mudge books)… by Cynthia Rylant
Henry's cousin Annie was coming to stay the night, the dog Mudge and he were really happy until Annie showed up. Annie was pretty and filly, she really didn't want the drooling dog all over her. She wasn't sure about Henry and his messy room either. After lunch, they played frisbee together and finally found something that Henry, Annie and Mudge enjoyed. Returning to the messy room after, Annie was no longer pretty and frilly, but she was just as dirty and Henry, Mudge or the room.

Cute story, enjoyed the difference between the first image of Annie, and the last. This is an easy book for the kids to read, it is a 2nd level reader with short chapters and short paragraphs but good sentence structure. This is a good book to introduce with quote marks for speaking lines. It also has a moral of keep at it and you can find common ground.
