Otis and the Puppy

Otis and the Puppy
Loren Long

Otis, the tractor, loves the little farm where he lives. Once his work is complete he loves playing with his friends, the farm animals. Hide and seek is his favorite game. But Otis makes sure he is home every evening before dark. One evening the farmer presents a new animal to the menagerie, a little puppy. Puppy is scared of the dark, just like Otis. So they soon become friends as they share a spot in the barn together. But when Puppy becomes lost in the woods after dark, Otis must overcome his fear of the dark to help his friend find a way home. 

This is a delightful story that will entertain children while showing them the meaning of true friendship and overcoming fears. The illustrations are imaginative and fit perfectly with the story line. The book is perfect for reading to small children, but the words are simple enough for a 1st grader to be able read alone.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
