Book Review and Giveaway: The Day Dirk Yeller Came to Town. Ends Oct 26th
The Day Dirk Yeller Came to Town by Mary Casanova illustrated by Ard Hoyt
The day Dirk Yeller came to town, the wind curled its lip, cattle quit lowin’, and tumbleweeds stopped tumblin’ along. Townsfolk whispered. “He starts stampedes!” “He holds up trains!” “He’s trouble!”
When Dirk Yeller scours the town for something to stop his itchin’ and twitchin’ and jumpin’ and rattlin’, no one seems able to help. But Sam, who’s been following Dirk all day—and who can sometimes be a little fidgety, too—knows the perfect solution…
My Review: You can’t help but to smile after reading ‘The Day Dirk Yeller Came to Town’. The story tells about an outlaw who came into Sam’s town to look for solutions to his problems, something to stop his itching and twitching. After moving from one store to another with no help, Sam decided to take him to the one place that would help solve his problems…the Library. With the help of Miss Jenny and Sam, Dirk Yeller opened books and read. The more he read, the less his problems.
Who knew that the power of books will help soothe a savage outlaw’s problems? The powerful message is the importance of books in the lives of children and how founding the right book and the importance of reading can help them to focus. I also love the illustrations by Ard Hoyt making reading this book fun. I highly recommend this book.
