When you have two adorable puppies, you know that everyone will love the book. Dash and Zoom are friends and this story is about Dash being a Little Miss Sneakypants. Zoom is resting and Dash is restless. She wanders over to the darning basket and pulls out a lone sock. She likes to play with it and then leaving it where it doesn’t belong. Dash reminds her that those socks are not her own.
Dash continues to be sneaky. She turns the basket over and hides underneath it. The sneaky little dog tries to bring the basket over to where she has taken all the socks. She’s making a real mess. Zoom is getting more and more unhappy.
Dash realizes that Zoom is right and corrects her mistakes by putting all the socks and yarn back in the basket. After she does the right thing will Dash be happy again? Children will love this beautifully illustrated book!
Publisher’s Synopsis: Dash and Zoom are really good friends. But when Dash takes things that don’t belong to her, even Zoom’s ball, there’s a problem to be solved because not only is Dash taking things that don’t belong to her, but she’s also hurting Zoom’s feelings.
Kids often have a difficult time understanding that they shouldn’t take things that don’t belong to them. When we don’t rescue kids from mistakes and instead focus on the solution, it’s an opportunity to help them learn to make good choices. The illustrations are extremely engaging and it’s always fun to see how many things you can find under that precarious chair.
Dash And Zoom: Little Miss Sneakypants is written for young children who are learning social norms. It exemplifies good decision-making and helps kids solve problems rather than being ‘in trouble’ for making a mistake. If children are approached with the opportunity to fix what is wrong without fear of anger it often contributes to good decision-making skills all throughout their lives. These two dogs are so engaging that children will want to read the book again and again.
