There is one lesson in this book. It is if you want a dog, then ask your parents and if they say no, then you should earn money to buy one yourself.
When I read this book I felt happy in the beginning because everybody was happy. In the middle I felt sad because her parents told her the story about their old dog and how it died. At the end I felt really happy because she got a real dog!
This story reminded me of our old cat. She died when she was thirty years old.
I liked Janie because she was up for anything. She was also kind. She was kind to her friends at school. She was also kind to her friend's hamster.
I recommend this book to kids in 1st-3rd grade. This would be a good book because it's interesting and exciting to read.
