Charlie Plays Ball
By: Ree Drummond
Release Date: March 24th, 2015
Publisher: HarperCollins

For Charlie, it's hard work being King of the Ranch. There's napping to do, food to taste, and car rides to take-it's downright exhausting! But it's not all work-there's a lot of play too!

There's always a game to join and a goal to score. From football to soccer to basketball, Charlie is ready to jump in and lend a paw to help the underdogs get the winning point. While Charlie may be an all-star on the field, when it comes to his favorite kind of ball, he has to wait until dinnertime. And at the table, Charlie is the MVP!

Ree Drummond—The Pioneer Woman herself—delivers a slam dunk with this hilarious new story about Charlie—a basset hound who is truly in a league of his own.

This summer "6" started soccer, and so a book about playing ball and that had puppies in it was pretty much the best thing ever for her.

From an adult perspective on this, I love Diane deGroat's illustrations because they remind me of picture books from when I was a child. The realistic farm scenes and rich colors brought back happy memories of reading when I was the one who was "6". We learn a lot about the farm from the point of view of Charlie the dog – and as the synopsis says, there's lots of playing to be done!

This book is great for boys and girls alike, everyone should have a copy at home! "6" even recognized Charlie from some of the I Can Read books she has!
