Hypothesis: "It’s easier being a dog than being a human." This seems pretty safe to say, but the notion is put to the test in this funny, action-packed, full-color chapter book based on the PBS show Martha Speaks. When Carolina is turned into a dog, she finds out how irresistible mud, meat, and squirrels can be…and ends up at the shelter! Then T.D. volunteers to live as a dog for a day. Is it as easy at it looks? By the end, readers will not only have had a good laugh, they’ll know the difference between empathy and sympathy, manners and mannerisms, and more. A glossary and some fun activities round out this perspective-tweaking chapter book.
