Kindergarten-Grade 3-This story reads aloud well, but the author's choice to set it in Appalachia is disconcerting and confusing. Back in the days when dogs had warm, dry noses, a scruffy brown pooch searches for a home. Lonely and hungry, Little Scraggly Hair enters a farmyard where Noah is building a huge boat. After the man throws him a crumb, the dog helps out by carrying bags of nails and fetching pieces of wood. When the time comes to gather the animals, he herds them aboard. The ark is so crowded that he has to stick his nose out through a knothole, and it becomes cold and wet during the journey. When they reach land, Noah tells his disapproving wife that Little Scraggly Hair must stay by the fire until his nose is warm and dry again. So begins the friendship between canines and humans. The text is written in a southern Appalachian dialect. The soft, realistic watercolor illustrations bring in the visual elements of this region-wooden cabins, rag rugs, mountains-as well as the drama of the Flood. Definitely a different take on Noah's tale, this picture book is an additional purchase.
