: Book Reviews > Sit, Truman
By Dan Harper
Published By Harcourt
One of the first things that dog owners want to teach their dogs
is to do tricks. Truman's owner is no different. Throughout this book there are few characters. Truman is a lovable, enormous dog and Oscar is a little dog. This book shows the day to day activities of this canine pair.
Truman has a mind of his own. Readers and young audiences will delight in seeing how this dog makes himself a part of everyday
activities. He tries to drink water out of the toilet bowl and eating his owner's lunch. He even attempts to dance with his owner. He has his head in the mailbox when his owner is getting the mail. And when going for a walk, Truman looms ahead while Oscar having smaller legs takes longer. Truman would rather rest when they get to the park than play
Frisbee. It seems as if Truman is always picking on little Oscar because of his small stature. The two are very entertaining in their own ways. Despite Truman being larger and taking up much more space, in the end they snuggle up and take a rest.
"Sit, Truman" will delight both dog lovers and non-dog lovers of all
ages. Recommended reading for children ages 3 to 7.
