    Not as good as the first book, Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea, but still cute. My favorite illustrations were of Mr. Putter and Tabby collapsing together after the huge chore of walking a small dog. Okay, that does look like a hassle. And I'm not judging others' tea-dessert-napcentric lifestyle. Not as good as the first book, Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea, but still cute.

    I love Zeke! The people and animals in these books have so much personality. I love these books, the whole series. They are warm and funny. Mr. Putter is so earnest, and kind, and polite. It’s just that funny things keep happening to him. The illustrations are very expressive, they really communicate the emotions of the characters, especially Tabby. These books are written for children who have outgrown “early readers” but are not quite ready for “chapter” books. They’re still easy to read and hav I love Zeke!

These books are written for children who have outgrown “early readers” but are not quite ready for “chapter” books. They’re still easy to read and have a picture on each page, but they have more words on each page, and an increased vocabulary. So I really, really recommend Mr. Putter if you have a child at that stage. I also recommend Mr. Putter for reading out loud. Legomeister loved these books when he read them, and now Little Miss is reading them and she loves them too.

    Well, Mrs. Teaberry's good dog Zeke wasn't so good in this installment of Mr. Putter & Tabby. Sadly, this installment wasn't so good either. It was ok, but it was a bit repetitive, and as I read this to the kids I sort of felt like they were waiting for the story to go somewhere. When it did finally go somewhere, I didn't like where it went, and then I was sort of left wondering if it reinforces to the kids that in order to deliver good behavior a reward must be promised first.

This is a belief that I'm currently trying to disabuse my nephew of, and Mr. Putter's solution to his troubles with Zeke did not help me out there. Of course, it's also likely that the kids completely forgot about this book as soon as we finished reading it, and if that's the case, then it still doesn't warrant more than two stars.

    I ADORE Mr. Putter! Cynthia Rylant and Arthur Howard are two of my all-time favs -- they're an outstanding duo. The Mr. Putter & Tabby series is an exceptional mix of delightful stories that show an older man and his beloved pet getting into the same kind of mishaps small children stumble into.

    Mr. Putter attempts to help his good friend, Mrs. Teaberry (hurt by an errant kiwi), by walking her dog Zeke. Unfortunately, Zeke is not a dream dog, he is a nightmare-and so the hilarity ensues. Rylant's familiar repetition adds a level of comfort to our night time ritual. She is simply the best.

    My review is mostly a response to other reviewers who didn't like this episode in the series because they missed the point. This is book two of the whole series. We know from future books that Mr. Putter's use of bribery to ensure good behavior doesn't work... Zeke continues to be impulsive and self-centered. So, no, this book doesn't teach children that bribery is a good strategy, or to expect bribes.

Mr. Putter only resorts to bribes because he won't be the dog-walker for long enough to be able to teach Zeke better manners. I don't particularly like dogs or nightmares either, but I still think this is a valid entry into the series, funny & warm & compassionate, and I'm glad that I finally got a chance to read it: 3.5 rounded down because it's just not one of the best. The only episode I didn't like is the book in which the oldsters snuck the animals onto the train against regulations. Now that is Rylant setting a bad example for young readers!

    Mr. Putter and Tabby sign themselves up to walk Mrs. Teaberry's dog Zeke for a week after she falls and is unable to walk him. Initially Mr. Putter thought that walking Zeke was going to be easy because Mrs. Teaberry tells him that Zeke is a "dream dog." Soon enough, Mr. Putter and Tabby find that Zeke is more of a "nightmare" than a "dream dog." Their adventure is humorous and will delight young readers. This book was okay.

The vocabulary was advanced at some points, but should not stop a beginner from enjoying the story.

    This is a cute story, the second book we've read in the Mr. Putter and Tabby series. Our girls really like them. This story involves Mr. Putter and Tabby doing a kind deed for Mrs. Teaberry, their neighbor, by walking her dog while she was laid up with a bad foot. Zeke, her dog, is not quite the dream dog they expect, but they manage to get through the week anyway. Fun story to read aloud.

    First sentence: Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, lived next door to Mrs. Teaberry and her small dog, Zeke. Premise/plot: Mr. Putter & Tabby Walk the Dog is the second book in the early chapter series by Cynthia Rylant. In the first chapter, Mr. Putter decides to help a neighbor for a week when she becomes unable to walk her dog. Mrs. Teaberry assures him that Zeke is a DREAM dog who never tugs, who never wraps around trees, who never chases other dogs. The second chapter opens with this sente First sentence: Mr. Putter and his fine cat, Tabby, lived next door to Mrs. Teaberry and her small dog, Zeke.

In the first chapter, Mr. Putter decides to help a neighbor for a week when she becomes unable to walk her dog. Mrs. Teaberry assures him that Zeke is a DREAM dog who never tugs, who never wraps around trees, who never chases other dogs. The second chapter opens with this sentence, "Zeke was a nightmare." The chapter chronicles the first three days. Zeke misbehaves; Mr. Putter and Tabby return EXHAUSTED and in need of treats. The first day: "When Mr. Putter and Tabby got home, they had to have some warm milk and pudding and a nap." The second day: "When Mr. Putter and Tabby got home, they had to have some warm milk and popovers and a nap." The third day: "When Mr. Putter and Tabby got home, they had to have some warm milk and shortbread and a nap." The third chapter chronicles the last four days; Mr. Putter and Tabby decide to approach walking the dog differently. They've resorted to bribery. Will Zeke be a dream dog if he's rewarded for good behavior?! My thoughts: I really enjoyed this one. The writing was excellent. I loved the narrative style. Rylant is a great storyteller. I would definitely recommend this series. And treat yourself by beginning at the beginning.

    The owner wanted what really happened in the book not to happen to the dog. He chased other dogs. He wrapped Mr. Putter and Tabby to a tree with the leash. Zeke was a nightmare. He dragged them through houses they had never been to before. Then the big dogs decided to chase Zeke. Zeke knew what a deal was and Mr. Putter told him to be nice so he would give him a reward. Then after that, Zeke was a dream dog.

    Personal Reaction: I really enjoyed reading this transitional book because I love animals (especially dogs!) and Zeke is a bulldog! This book also had humor, which is one thing I really look for when I read books. There was also no confusion with this book. The author was very clear with what he wanted to say by using a lot of repetition. The illustrations in this book were phenomenal as well! I loved being able to see exactly what ruckus Zeke was causing on his walk everyday with Mr. Putter and Personal Reaction: I really enjoyed reading this transitional book because I love animals (especially dogs!) and Zeke is a bulldog!

I loved being able to see exactly what ruckus Zeke was causing on his walk everyday with Mr. Putter and Tabby cat. It was a great book! Purposes/Use in the classroom: Read Aloud to make a Curricular Connection -This would be a good book to read while learning about domestic animals like dogs and cats and the responsibility that come with taking care of them. It shows the level of care they need, like walking and feeding them, and it also shows how they may or may not listen to you and you must train them to be good animals. -This is a good read aloud book to use when students are just learning how to read but are more advanced than beginner books. Independent Reading -This is a good book to read after children can easily read beginners books. -This book has a lot of repetition which is important for transitional books to have in order to help the reader. The book described that Zeke the dog chased big dogs, he chased them around houses, and he chased them through creeks. The author does a similar thing with wrapping the leash around trees, and wrapping the leash around Mr. Putter and Tabby (a humorous remark that kids love and think is hilarious!). For narrative -This book could teach students about conflict by using Mr. Putter and Tabby's conflict with Zeke the dog. Mr. Putter struggles against Zeke's force when he wraps around everything, chases other dogs, and pulls him along. This is a person-against-person (animal!) conflict, and they resolve the conflict when Mr. Putter promises a surprise at the end of each day to Zeke if he behaves and listens. Once they make that decision, Zeke is a great dog and they get along! Other as Appropriate -This book could be used to teach about style of books. This style includes and really emphasizes repetition use. Another style the author uses is humor, and kids love this especially because a lot of them can most likely relate to having a dog that goes crazy on a leash and chases after animals! -This book could also teach about tone. This book starts out with a frustrated tone because Mr. Putter cannot control Zeke, but they create a bond and then the tone changes to happy and humorous because they all get along!

The font is bigger and new vocabulary such as "Russian" is used, helping students question and recognize what they are reading. -Reading chapter books is a large leap into growth and development for second grade students. They would feel extremely accomplished if they were able to finish this book completely on their own. This would be a good book for students to read independently and reflect of what they have read. The reflection could be some sort of summarization of the book, or the main theme in which students learned from it. Other: -I think that as educators, we should use our own experiences to either keep or change certain curriculum. Since I did enjoy reading this book as a child, I would highly recommend it to my students and encourage them to read it just as I did. We should take our experiences and incorporate them into the classroom.

    Mr. Putter and Tabby are a great pair. And so are their friends Mrs. Teaberry and her bulldog, Zeke! When Mrs. Teaberry hurts her foot, her good friend Mr. Putter volunteers to walk Zeke for her. This leads young readers down a silly sequence of a not-so- reciprocal relationship between Mr. Putter and Zeke. Readers will laugh when Zeke drags Mr. Putter down the street, around a tree and completely wears him out.

    My son and I both thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series (through #18; the rest weren't published / available at our library yet). Mrs. Rylant's sentence structure is simple enough for beginning readers to enjoy but don't let that fool you! Each book contains an engaging plot, clever & silly humor, and underlying themes of friendship, thoughtfulness, and responsibility.
