How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O’Connor

How to Steal a Dog What would you do for money you needed for a home?  What would you say was ok, as long as you had a bed to lie in? In the story How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O’Connor, young Georgina feels the only option she has is to steal a dog, return it to its owner who is sure to offer a reward, and use the reward money toward rent for a new apartment.  This would mean not having to live in a car anymore.  While Georgina knows that stealing isn’t right, she doesn’t see any other way. Plus, having written down all the details in her notebook under “how to steal a dog,” she has everything figured out. Or does she?  Recommended for 3-6th grades.
