Read Frank and Lucky Get Schooled Online Free - Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Lynne Rae Perkins introduces a boy (Frank) and a dog (Lucky) in this celebratory, wry, and happily unconventional introduction to the subjects children encounter in school. This beautifully illustrated, humorous, and insightful picture book offers a new twist on the classic boy-and-his-dog story!
On a rainy day, Frank’s parents take him to the shelter to get a new dog. That’s how Frank finds Lucky, and from that moment on, they’re inseparable. As Frank and Lucky venture out into the world around them, they discover they both have a lot to learn. Exploring their neighborhood teaches them about biology: Lucky learns all about squirrels, deer, and—unfortunately for Frank—skunks. Sharing a bed teaches them about fractions—what happens when one dog takes up three-quarters of the bed, or even the whole thing? They even learn different languages: Frank makes a friend who speaks Spanish and Lucky tries to learn Duck! Who knew you could learn so much without ever setting foot inside a classroom?

An interesting book about a boy and his dog. Their daily tribulations show the world in which they live, while highlighting areas of science, the arts, and other academic pursuits. The reader learns of these areas as well, shown their practical implications. Neo was interested, which surprised me...

Very cool way of showing how what you learn in school can be applied to every day life, on top of a cute story about a friendship between a boy and his dog. This would be a great first week of school book for a 2nd or 3rd grade class.

I thought this was a great book for elementary-aged children. Frank gets Lucky at the pound. In the adventures that result, Frank learns a lot about the subject he might learn at school. Science and Entomology when Frank and Lucky explore a meadow/forest. Chemistry when Lucky gets sprayed by a sk...

There are books I can't wait to read aloud to a class and there are books I can't wait to snuggle in bed and read with my son. This is the latter. It's perhaps too long for a read-aloud and I know my curious, science-loving son will have a lot of questions and comments to make as we read it. The...

The story of a boy and his dog with a special focus on how caring for a dog can look a lot like various areas of academic study.
The writing/storytelling in this book is so clever and is evident from the very beginning in which the back story of both boy and dog appears in three panels above the a...

A celebration of dogs and all the ways they enrich the lives of humans, told through the eyes of one particular boy and his canine best buddy. Not all picture books are for pre-schoolers; due to the amount of text, some advanced vocabulary, and the exploration of school subjects, this one is best...

Okay, I think Perkins is one of the most overrated writers out there. (Try reading student reviews of Criss Cross instead of those of teachers and librarians.) And I'm a cat person, though dogs are okay.
But those prejudices aside, this is a picture book for a much, much older audience. It is word...
