When summer vacation begins, Johnny’s routine changes, and he is not sure what to do with himself all day long. Each day, he asks, “Mother, what can I do now? I don’t have anything to do.” His mother always replies, “Take a walk, Johnny.” Johnny finds many things on his walks. Soon he does not need to ask his mother what to do. Instead, Johnny announces that he’s going for a walk. It is on his self-initiated walk that he finds a puppy. Children will delight in what happens at the outcome of this simple story. While the story remains fresh in spite of the fact that it was first published more than 25 years ago, the illustrations appear dated. Mom is shown at home wearing a dress and pumps while she repairs a chair, hangs curtains and reads the newspaper. From the “Easy Stories” set of the “Beginning-to-Read” series, this book offers new readers repeated phrases and recognizable words so that they gain reading confidence. In addition, 35 enrichment words enhance the story. This revised and expanded library edition includes an instructional note, a word list and activities to strengthen children’s reading and comprehension. 2009 (orig. 1981).
