"Charlie the Ranch Dog" by The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond and illustrated by Diane deGroat is based on Ree's real-life pup. In this delightful story, Charlie is king of the ranch - and it's a very good thing he is there. He keeps the cattle out of the garden, sniffs out critters that don't belong under the porch, and keeps everybody in line. Well, he tries to anyway! He can't help that his short legs make him slow and that his droopy eyelids make him nap a lot! But when he's really needed, Charlie proves he doesn't just think he's in charge of the ranch - he actually is! Kids are sure to enjoy this delightful children's book.
