Dixie is excited to play with Emma. Dixie goes everywhere with Emma. Emma tries out for a play. Dixie grabs Emma's papers for the play. Emma gets upset at Dixie. Dixie just wants attention. Emma wants to do well in her play.

My favorite part of the story is when Dixie takes Emma's shoes for the play because Dixie is having fun. My favorite character is Dixie because some day I hope to have a dog. This story relates to my life because I don't have a dog, but I do have a brother and a sister who take my things. The pictures show what is going on in the story.

Everyone should read "Dixie" because it is a playful story. This story is funny and shows caring.
