It’s what the humans always call them, so Down Girl and Sit must be the names of these dog friends. The Down Girl and Sit dog’s-eye-view chapter books for first to third graders are filled with humor and reading-level-appropriate vocabulary, to build reading confidence and skills.
Down Girl spends her days protecting her master, Rruff, from Here Kitty Kitty and the neighborhood squirrels. But when Rruff invites Down Girl on a road trip, Down Girl knows she’s in for an even bigger adventure.
With her best friend, Sit, along for the ride, the fun really begins. These two dogs never know quite where they’re going, but one thing’s certain. When they hop into a car, they’re sure to drive everyone crazy!
The popular Down Girl and Sit stories were inspired by Lucy Nolan’s two setters, Nutmeg and Becky.
The second book in the series, On the Road, recently won the Texas Bluebonnet Award, given to the children’s book that won the most votes from children in the Lone Star state.
