Sheila Tubman was on summer vacation in the country. Sheila went to day camp, made new friends and learned to swim. She had problems too. She is afraid of spiders, the dark, swimming, and most of all dogs. Sheila's problem is that she needs to take care of a dog. Read the book to find out what happens.

Sheila reminds me of myself, because Sheila is afraid of certain things just like me.

The author used great illustrations because on the cover of the book the colors are pretty. The author used pink, black, blue, green, and other colors.

When I read the book, I felt excited about what would happen next. The book made me wonder what would happen to Sheila.

This book reminds me of when I was afraid to swim at first. My favorite part was when Jennifer [the dog] was licking Sheila's legs, because I like it when dogs lick me. It feels good. Dogs are cute, smart and lovable.

I recommend this book to people who like adventure and excitement. The book is fun to read!
