It is refreshing in the world of nonfiction picture books to find one that would make a great read aloud and lesson introduction for our youngest readers. Little Dog Lost: The True Story of a Brave Dog Named Baltic is just that. With highly selective and predictable (in a good way) text, follows the story of Baltic as he is first spotted on an ice floe in the river and travels along where he is finally rescued by the crew of a ship. The final page has more detailed information of Baltic's rescue. The end papers include a map illustration of Baltic's journey and rescue. The illustrations throughout are inviting and sweet. Author and illustrator Monica Carnesi is currently local to Philadelphia. I'm seeing a pattern here...
