Two Dogs in a Trench Coat #3

AR Test, Good for Reluctant Readers
Every day Sassy and Waldo put on a trench coat so that everyone thinks they are a human kid named Salty. Then they go to school with their boy, Stewart. When their teacher announces that the class will go on a field trip to a museum, Sassy and Waldo are excited. They love trips!
Stewart isn’t so excited about the field trip. Steward says everyone will have to learn facts. When Sassy and Waldo have to fill out the permission slip that says lunch on it, they wonder how can a trip to a place with lunch be bad?
Sassy and Waldo will entertain readers with its comical, easy-to-read writing style and hilarious black and white illustrations. Much of the humor comes from the fact that it is absolutely obvious that Waldo and Sassy are dogs, but no one notices. The font changes each time Sassy and Waldo talk, making it easy for readers to follow along with the conversation. Many of the words appear in large, bold font, which adds interest to the page and also highlights the dog’s obsession with food.
Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Go on a Class Trip is silly enough to entertain even the most reluctant readers. Even though the third book in the series does not have the educational value of the previous book, readers will enjoy watching Sassy and Waldo chomp on a dinosaur bone, run from the guards, and lead students on their own version of a museum tour.
The story ends with a short lesson on the importance of trying new things as well as getting to know new people. The guards and the tour guide have a rivalry, which causes them to avoid each other. They just make up nicknames for each other. With the help of food, the guards and tour guides begin to build a friendship.
If you’re looking for a fun series that will engage readers and encourage them to read for enjoyment, then pick up any of the Two Dogs in a Trench Coat books, which do not need to be read in order. The silly story Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Go on a Class Trip will have readers giggling through the entire book. Look for the fourth installment of the series, Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Enter Stage Left.
