From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Beneath an ever-changing expanse of prairie sky, MacLachlan's poetic, aptly chosen words bring the sights, sounds, and smells of her story alive in this intimate reminiscence by a child's great-grandfather about one school year and his dog. The narrative is told in the child's voice, sometimes as third person, sometimes as a dialogue between him and the elderly man. Three Names, a dog with a decided personality, looked forward to going to school, dancing and prancing around the wagon, barking at clouds that covered the sun, and frowning at a boy he considered "sly." MacLachlan transforms each event into a special one with precise imagery. Moods and action are beautifully painted by Pertzoff in soft watercolor illustrations, an ever-present canopy for the slightly impressionistic but still clearly etched people and things underneath it. Although this text is longer than most picture books and the words are strong enough to tell the tale on their own, the illustrations nonetheless are important, enhancing the telling with the beautiful colors that paint the prairie, hills, and sky. Several lives and several levels are at work in this quiet evocation that is a gift for all generations to enjoy alone or share with one another.
