My son s homework every night, seven days a week, is to read for 15 minutes, and to record what he reads in a book log This has proved to be a challenge for me It s hard to find that much reading material for him that s at the right level Well, not exactly true there is the early reader section of my local library, with which I have become intimately familiar these last two months Rather, the hard part is finding books there that don t make me want to tear my hair out with boredom Apparently the [...]
MCL I like the song the duck sang Fluffy pancakes in the air Pancakes, pancakes, everywhere
Tim Egan scores again with another book in his Dodsworth series The mouse sets off for an adventure of his own making but Hodge s duck interrupts his plans by stowing away in Dodsworth s trunk Easily one of the best examples of situational comedy in children s beginning chapter books, in this book Dodsworth tours New York like a professional simply by chasing all over the city looking for Hodge s crazy duck The duck is the quintessential selfish, nonchalant character and Dodsworth is a loyal, st [...]

This is the first book in the Dodsworth series by Tim Egan It explains how Dodsworth first came to travel with a duck and describes their experiences in New York City.We first discovered this series when we read Dodsworth in Tokyo, and I thought we would go back and read the rest of the series in order We liked the story and the duck is very silly Dodsworth is a bit stiff and proper, but then every comedian needs a straight man, right Overall, we thought this was an entertaining story and we are [...]
While this book was just right for reading and had a lot of adventure, the illustrations never quite matched up I mean Dodsworth is ALL OVER New York City and the storefronts or city blocks could have been from anywhere in the world really I would have liked a little attention to detail so I could have EXPERIENCED the city in the way that Dodsworth was.Otherwise I liked it The story was cute and funny and kept moving I wish someone would mash up these books with the attention to detail that the [...]
Dodsworth longs for adventure, and he has decided he s going to seek it in New York City, Paris, London, and wherever he can go after that Before he begins his trip, he stops for pancakes at his friend Hodges cafe At the cafe he runs into Hodges duck, who is crazy and loves to throw food Once Dodsworth has embarked on his adventure, he discovers that Hodges duck has hidden away in his luggage Instead of going where he wishes, Dodsworth has to chase the duck all over New York City This annoyance [...]
Dodsworth in New York is a visual chapter book that will appeal to kids in 2nd and 3rd grade I love the illustrations I value the fact that its a chapter book that blends solid 2nd grade vocabulary with bigger words like Hodges, ruined, and excitement, as well as introducing domestic and foreign place names Kids will enjoy the whimsical adventure of the duck tagging along uninvited, and they will also be introduced to the serial adventure, as the end of the story leads to the sequel Dodsworth in [...]
Very entertaining I hope Dodsworth and the duck will go to Paris in a second book My favorite thing is how the duck seems to be ruining Dodsworth s travels, but as Dodsworth dutifully hunts down the wandering duck, he finds many sights to enjoy that he would not otherwise have noticed Sorry he ruined your adventure, said Hodges Ruined it He was the adventure, said Dodsworth Well said
My kids and I knew we d like these comic easy readers from the first page Dodsworth wanted adventure.He wanted to fly in a plane.He wanted to sail on a ship.He wanted to see the world.But first, he wanted breakfast.Charming, humorous offerings for young readers that withstand the parent read aloud test.
I ve been trying to update my early chapter book collection in my elementary school library This is the first book which made me feel compelled to read the rest of the books in the series i love the characters and couldn t wait to find out what happens next So cute, plus kids learn about the touristy places of various large cities.
I read the first one last,so I m just NOW finding out how Duck and Dodsworth got together.I have to admit, it totally fulfilled my expectations I love all the things I love about the other ones wacky story, great illustrations, fun monuments and landmarks but really love that it s the origin story of Duck and Dodsworth I hope they have many adventures
Loved it To make it even better it s one of the few books that can keep my toddler s attention Silly and entertaining It would be a great book for a book report for an early elementary child Teaches about New York attractions too, which is a reason I got it since we are taking a trip to NY for the first time since my son was three months old.
We love Dodsworth in place series.Not only the story is entertaining but it is also educational the book mentions famous places within the city.It is best to read the series in order but the individual books can be enjoyed by itself however, do read the The Pink Refrigerator and Dodsworth in New York in those orders, first.
Funny easy reader with short chapters Dodsworth wanted an adventure He wanted to travel and see the world But, what he didn t want is a silly tag a long duck Too bad, cause that s what he s got And, now he s chasing that duck all around New York City More travels are certainly in store.
Dodsworth in New York wasn t bad, and the kids listened to the story, but I don t really think it made too much of an impression on them I found the book to be a little bit repetitive, but I did like the duck.
Such a cute, fun book to read to young children This book is full of surprises and bright, exciting illustrations The book is set up in chapters so its easy to put down and pick up again later The book also has a cliffhanger ending that leads to Egan s next book, Dodsworth in Paris.
Dodsworth wants to see the world New York, Paris London Unfortunately he has a stowaway, a mischievous duck This series should be read in on order, otherwise some of the duck s later antics seem mean, rather than silly.
When Dodsworth sets out for adventure, including a stop in New York City before going to Paris, London, and beyond, he does not expect a crazy duck to stow away in his suitcase and lead him on a merry chase.
I love Tim Egan.
Funny, enjoyable beginning reader.
This is the first book in the series, and they are all delightful We learn how Dodsworth comes to have his love hate relationship with duck.
Hilarious Josh was laughing out loud at this one.
We love Dodsworth We have read, and re read this series so many times
This book makes us want to read the other stories about Dodsworth
Oh my goodness An indeterminate animal in a bowler hat, a crazy duck, hijinks in NYC what do you need I must read all of these books immediately.
Dodsworth plans an adventurous trip which turns out unexpectedly since a duck joins him Good NYC book
This book is good for practicing to read It is kind of annoying that it leads into the sequel The Paris book.
