Jig Gets Lost
Julia Kneeland & Illustrated by Rachael Buddpuppy or even an adult dog. Julia Kneeland writes about a little puppy named Jig and his day in the neighborhood and his various adventures. Julia is a writer who is also a teacher, who has written this picture book for beginner readers. She chose to have primary type for easy reading and Rachael has drawn the pictures that were vivid and described the written words perfectly to me. The pictures were also realistic images for her work in this book. There are many lessons that could or can be created from this children’s story book. Ideas for activities could be on community workers, what makes a family, and maybe even a few geography lessons. ‘Jig’ is a character that shows many emotions/feelings in this early reader that may be a start for a discussion on having feelings that we all have at one time or another. My favorite picture pages were the ones where Jig is being scratched by one vendor, the family picture at the end and even the one where Jig is looking at the map. Cannot wait for the next in the series.Who doesn’t like a good animal or puppy story. ‘Jig Gets Lost’ a children’s picture book that should make readers want a
