'The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!' was a fun book to read and would be very engaging for young readers. Children are able to hear a story that is funny and interesting, while ending with a positive underlying message. By the end of the story, the pigeon decides to share half of the hot dog with the little bird, representing the kindness in acts of sharing. I think that this is a great story for young readers to read/listen to due to its mixture of humor and a meaningful ending. Although the pigeon struggled to come to terms with the idea of sharing his hot dog, eventually he split it with the little bird and were both able to enjoy it together, which is even better! I would highly recommend the book as a good story. ( )

I really liked this book. Pigeon finds a hot dog and he wants to eat the entire thing, but duckling has never had a hot dog before. He is asking Pigeon all kinds of questions about the hot dog and Pigeon is getting frustrated with him. Finally they decide to split the hot dog in half so they both get to eat the hot dog. I think this is a good book to read with young children they will think it is funny and they can understand the concept of sharing with others. ( )

Pigeon rocks! In this tale he has discovered a hot dog, but fast on the heels of his discovery is pesky, inquisitive and ultimately brilliant duckling. Laugh out loud fun, with a good message for kids about sharing. ( )

In this book, the pigeon finds a hotdog and comes across a curious duckling who has never tried a hotdog. At first the pigeon is very selfish and does not want to share, but finally he splits it in half and the duckling gets to try it. The emotion and personality that Willems gives the pigeon’s character will have readers wanting to constantly read about his adventures. ( )
