About the Book


See Me Run is a 2012 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Book.

New Readers will delight in this joyful story with its surprise climax. The characters have energy and charm that will delight young children as they embark on a satisfying, first-time reading adventure.

Happiness is a day in the park for this pack of running, joyful canines. They run, chase one another, jump in mud, go for a swim, and dig, dig, dig! Their doggy day becomes even more wonderful when they discover a mother lode of bones! But when some bones magically arrange themselves as a T-Rex, the dogs find themselves running away from the giant skeleton!


"Formatted in a larger trim than the usual early reader, this imaginary rumpus is just right for beginners to successfully read and reread."—Kirkus Reviews
