When a little dog appears at a family picnic, the girl and boy play with him all afternoon, and they name him Willy. At day's end they say good-bye. But the dog has won their hearts and stays on their minds. The following Saturday the family returns to the picnic grounds to look for Willy, but they are not alone -- the dogcatcher is looking for him, too... Caldecott Medalist Marc Simont's heartwarming tale of a stray dog who finds a home is told with appealing simplicity and grace.

One time I picked up a stray and found his owner the next day. This book reminded me of that when Willy got a new home.

I loved this book. It was very heart warming. The kids brought in a stray dog into their family and gave him a good home.

The stray dog is a cute short story about a family finding a stray and bringing him into their home. It shows little kids how to feel compassionate.

The Stray Dog by Marc Simont was written in 2001 and is a Caldecott Honor book. This book was so good. It really pulls at emotions. It almost made me tear up a little bit. I think it really shows how much of an impact a dog can have on people and especially children. Dogs are our friends, and this shows how passionate children can be since these kids saved this dog from the dog hunter. The illustrations were very cute and add to the story.

This would be an excellent choice for children to read because some could have dogs at home and easily relate to the story.

#ucflae3414f17 The Stray Dog by Marc Simont is a RF picture book about a family who finds a stray dog, but leaves him behind assuming he has a home. Later, they find the dog again being chased by a dog catcher. Realizing the dog was without a home, the family intervenes and tells the dog catcher that the dog belongs to them. They decide to actually keep the dog and give him a new loving home. This book won the Caldecott and the Boson Globe Honor

Juliemorell award, and would be a wonderful PR for students. The UDL strategy I would use with this book is 6.3 facilitate managing information and resources. The ESOL strategy I would use is #2; Promote cooperation. 2y
Juliemorell http://www.practicallyspeeching.com/2014/04/the-stray-dog-free-comprehension-pac... this link has an activity for students to draw the dog at four different stages in the story and a short response question asking what they would do if they were in the family's shoes. P.S. My own dog loved this book! (edited) 2y
