The book, How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O'connor is about a family that has their father walk out on them, only leaving them with little to no money. They end up getting evicted from the apartment that they lived in, forcing them to live in their car. The book portrays the main character, the daughter, going through life struggles any young girl would go through at her age, and then some more because her friends begin to find out that she has to live out of her car. She is determined to do whatever it takes to help her family and when she sees a flyer for a missing dog with a cash reward, she comes up with a plan. She is going to steal a dog, and when she sees a flyer with a cash reward for the missing pet, she will return it in exchange for the money. Eventually, she realizes that her actions aren't good and returns the dog that she stole from the owner. In the end, the family finds somewhere to live and they gain a friendship with the woman that they stole the dog from. ( )

Georgina's family is homeless and in need of money. After Georgina sees a poster advertising a reward for a lost dog, she gets the idea to steal a dog and take the reward money. I believe this would be a good book for kids to read because they can read from the perspective of someone living in a situation they've probably never experienced before. My librarian read this book to my class in 4th grade, and I loved it. The story was something that stuck with me because I had never read about a character like Georgina before.

This is a book about a family who lives in their car due to their father leaving and being evicted from their apartment. Because of this, the children's mother works two jobs and is working really hard to make ends meet, so the daughter must look over her younger brother Toby often. There is an award for a missing dog for 500 dollars, and thinking that this will help her family, she decides to borrow a dog to be able to get the reward. But instead she begins to realizes what is right from what is wrong. This book is intended for the ages of 8-12. I would use this in my ELAR class to be able to discuss character development with my students and use this book for various activities regarding this. ( )
