Rock On! Charlie the Ranch Dog Rock Star by Ree Drummond
YAWN! RELAXING WITH MAMA IS THE BEST AFTER A LONG DAY OF RANCH WORK.
Charlie stretches luxuriantly for a little down time watching the tube--when he sees something that perks his ears up, if that were possible, that is.
Hey! Check that cool cat, er, dog!
COOL SHADES! EVERYONE CHEERS FOR HIM!
I WANT TO BE A ROCK STAR DOG! NO MORE WORKING MY PAWS TO THE BONE!
HEL-LO, CHARLIE THE ROCK STAR!
No more working cowdog! Charlie decides to go for glitz and glam!
He rustles up some stylish sunglasses and the au courant slouch cap, tosses a silk scarf carelessly around his neck, and admires his makeover in the mirror.
"I'M THE GREATEST!"
Now it's time for the de rigueur celebrity photo shoot. The boy and his sister get the camera and take some publicity shots. Ahh, yessss! Charlie has finally found his look and is living the life!! No more chasing muddy cows for him. He's a changed dog.
Or is he? What's that smell? Is Mama makin' BACON?
Charlie's second career is put on hold as he heads to beg for bacon in his bowl, in Ree Drummond's I-Can-Read Charlie the Ranch Dog: Rock Star (I Can Read Level 1) (HarperCollins, 2015). With school underway, or about to be, all over the land, it's time to brush up on those reading skills, and who better to read with than that laid-back Bassett, Charlie the Ranch Dog. Luckily for early readers, Charlie the Ranch Dog has many starring guest appearances in his own series which practically offer every reader star status.
