Reflections of The Dog That Learned English

ByBernadette Falletta and Marie Gasparro

This delightful story is about a dog that moves to the United States with his family. None of them can speak or understand English. The family learns English in school and they make friends with classmates and people in their community. The little dog is worried that he won’t make friends or understand anyone because he doesn’t go to school and he only understands commands in his first language. ESL teachers, Bernadette Falletta and Marie Gasparro, have captured the essence of the hard work, conflicting emotions, and dedication their students are challenged with when they come to America. Parents and educators will use this book as an enjoyable and valuable tool for stimulating conversation with children about text-to-self connections to themselves, family, classmates, and friends.
