Henry the dog helps his owner's little brother Sam learn the multiplication tables.

Grade 2-5-- Third grader Sam wants a dog. When his older sister comes home to visit, she brings her dog, Henry, with her, and this seems to Sam like an ideal opportunity to convince his mother that he should have one, too. Henry helps Sam learn his troublesome multiplication tables, and even saves him from a falling tree during a thunderstorm. The story ends with a promise to Sam that he can get a puppy. Cheerful and humorous, with just the right touch of believability, this is a pleasant story for independent readers. The inclusion of the poems the family likes to read is a nice addition, and a page of notes gives sources and additional information about them. Realistic black-and-white pencil sketches adequately illustrate the action.
