REAL vs. FAKE
There are things in your life that will always offer you comfort. For Sharron, The Friskative Dog is just that. Even though it's just a stuffed animal, Sharron treats it like a real puppy dog. It sleeps with her every night, and even has a leash and special purple collar. THE FRISKATIVE DOG by Susan Straight is about a little girl who's Daddy has disappeared. Her mom and grandma hope for his safe return, but the only comfort Sharron has is her stuffed dog. She is also in the 4th grade, and she does her best to deal with the sadness of her lost dad and the ups and downs of school. Good thing The Friskative Dog is there for her every night. For 3rd - 6th grade.
