About Hero Dog!
“Ten-year-old crime reporter Hilde Lysiak is starring in her very own Branches early chapter book series — inspired by news stories Hilde wrote in real life! In this first book, there’s been a break-in on Orange Street! Cupcakes have been stolen, and soon a pie goes missing, too. Hilde and her sister/photographer, Izzy, must interview witnesses and follow the clues. Can Hilde crack the case in time to post her news story online? Joanne Lew-Vriethoff’s personality-filled illustrations appear on every page, bringing Hilde’s adventures to life for young readers!”-Scholastic
This is a really cute and fun book and I love that it is at the right level for new independent readers. It can be tricky to find the right chapter books for kids at that stage, and I love that this series fits so perfectly there. Introducing kids to a love of reading early on is so important. Hero Dog! is fun, easy to read and is interesting to kids. It definitely helps cultivate an early love of chapter books.
