Frank and Lucky Get SchooledBook - 2016
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?

SummaryAdd a Summary
A delightful book about a young red-headed boy who isn't having very many successes in his life. The parents decide that it is time for him to have a dog, which they rescue. Lucky turns out to be the common factor in turning on Frank's discovery of the world and learning how it has been divided up into a myriad of studies to investigate. This shows that most interest in learning is sparked outside the classroom.
