Om forfatteren

Former professional football player and National Football League coach Anthony Kevin "Tony" Dungy was born in Jackson, Michigan on October 6, 1955. While a high school basketball and football player, he was featured in the Faces in the Crowd section of a 1970 Sports Illustrated issue. Dungy worked vis mere for a number of NFL teams before being hired as the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1996. Following his successes there, he held the head coach position for the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2008, becoming in 2007 the first African-American head coach to win a Super Bowl. Dungy was also the youngest assistant coach and coordinator for the NFL and the first head coach to defeat every team. He is one of the few individuals to have won a Super Bowl as both a player and a head coach. Dungy has written several bestselling books, including the memoir Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices, and Priorities of a Winning Life, the picture book You Can Do It, and Uncommon Marriage: Learning about Lasting Love and Overcoming Life's Obstacles Together. He has been involved in a number of charities, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Athletes in Action, Mentors for Life, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs, the Prison Crusade Ministry, and All Pro Dad. He also assists Basket of Hope, the Black Coaches Association National Convention, Indiana Black Expo, the United Way of Central Indiana, and the American Diabetes Association. In 2007, Dungy was appointed to the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation, and in 2009 President Barack Obama asked him to join the Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

{My Thoughts} - This is a cute level two reader about a dog named Ruby. She is a sweet dog that a nice family adopts. Each of the kids in the family buy a special gift for Ruby, when the family goes to the pet store. Everything they buy is RED. They decided that Ruby is another name for red so everything she has needed to be red too. When it comes time for everyone to go to sleep each of the children in the family want her to sleep with them. In the end Ruby decides where she wants to sleep.

I really like this book, because it shows children the responsibility of having and caring for a pet. It also helps to show that children may not always agree with one another when it comes to how the pet should be cared for. It also shows that the nicer you are towards one another the easier it is to resolve whatever issues may arise when other children in the family may not want to share a pet with one another.

I think this is a wonderful book for any family that is thinking about getting a new pet, already has one and wants their children to get along.

Another good book by Dungy. Really good for young adults trying to figure out the right things to do.

For any of us, to be uncommon is a worthy goal.
