Stacy McAnulty's story is funny, adorable, cleverly devised, and it has a very satisfying ending. Julia Sarcone-Roach's illustrations are equally cute, humorous, colorful, and expressive (bonus points for a family of color!). Also, Excellent Ed has excellent page layouts!

Everyone in Ed’s family is excellent except for Ed. He doesn’t understand why he isn’t allowed to eat at the table, ride in the van, sit on the couch or use the inside bathroom like the rest of the family. So he decides that he’s just not good enough and sets out to find something that he is the best in. But each time he finds something, one of the others in the family shows how much better they are than he is at exactly that thing. Finally, Ed shows why he is the perfect pet in a perfec [...]

Gr 1-3-- “All the Ellis children were excellent at something. Except Ed.” While Elaine excels at soccer, Ed (who may or may not realize that he is a dog) slobbers all over the ball. Ernie bakes exquisite cupcakes - Ed eats them. The kids even surpass Ed at the sweetly dim doggie skills that he claims for his own - breaking stuff (Elaine breaks a scoring record), losing things (the twins lose baby teeth), and forgetting stuff (the family ballerina forgets to be nervous and aces her audition).

The picture of Ed on the cover is super cute. And I love the illustrations throughout. But the story itself didn't grab me. The premise is that Ed (a dog) can't figure out why he can't do what people do (riding in cars, sitting on the sofa, etc.). And then he concludes it's because he's not good at stuff that people do (losing things, forgetting things). But then he realizes he is good at some things, and he's happy again. Yawn.Or maybe it was the terrible blocky font that distracted me? Dunno.M [...]

The Ellis family all got to eat at the table, ride in the van, sit on the couch, and use the indoor bathroom all except Ed, the dog. Ed worked on being excellent so that he could join the family at the table, in the van, on the couch, and in the bathroom, but so far nothing was working. Everyone else in the family was better at doing all the things Ed tried to do. But then Ed found out what he really excelled at and why he didn't eat at the table, ride in the van, and sit on the couch. Of course [...]

This is a really cute story about a dog, Ed, who just wants to fit in with his family. Everybody in the family is very talented, but Ed doesn't feel like he's good at anything. Young children will have a great time reading to see if Ed figures out what his special talents are.

Fantastic illustrations, and I like that a family of color is depicted without it being the central plot point of the story. Text fell a bit flat for me.

Everyone has something good and unique and excellent about them. Look for it. That's what Ed had to do, and he found it. Great message.

Ed can't figure out what there are different rules for him than for the other children in the house. (Apparently, Ed doesn't realize he's a dog and the others are humans.)He tries to figure out something that he's Excellent at, because he thinks that if he's Excellent at something it will let him do the same things (like eat at the table and sit on the couch) that the other kids do.Unfortunately, everything he comes up with, one of the other kids has done it first.At the end, he finds things tha [...]

There are so many immediate pro's about this book - from sweet illustrations to the premise of wanting to be excellent like those in your family to the dog-centered story (a big pro for my preschooler) to the Ellis family being a family of color - and yet, this book is not a favorite. It was hard to keep my little one's attention and I ended up changing the words to get through the book with her. It's just a little too long and could have used some more editing. An Imagination Library Book.

diverse picture book (pets/dogs, letter "E"; preschool ages 3+)* Prominently features diverse characters: the Ellis family (5 children, mom & dad) are Black; the kids appear prominently on most of the spreads showcasing their various talents (soccer, math, dancing, baking, eating at the table) compared to Ed's lack thereof.* Suitable for preschool/kinder and up. Longer text, but a humorous and engaging plot.

A cute dog tale. Or is it a tail? I really like the way they took skills that we may not think are positive and gave them a positive twist. English is such a funny language with so many meanings to our words and phrases. This story is great for kids who love dogs and for teachers who are teaching the double meanings of our language.

I wonder all the time what goes through my puppy's mind, and this book gave an adorable look at just that! Sweet Ed wants to be excellent like all the other members of his family, and when he finally figures out what he's excellent at, I was audibly saying, "Awwwww" in the bookstore.

I thought the book was excellent! At first Ed felt like he couldn't do anything that others could do, which relates to sometimes how children feel; then it gives children an insight on how everyone is 'excellent' at something!

Very cute. The dog figures out why he's not allowed to do thingst because he can't, but because he is needed to do other things. Except he can't figure out why he can't use the indoor bathroom. :-)

I thought the story of the dog that feels less than adequate an unimportant was cute. the ending tied the story together. There were parts of the story that were hard to read it may have been the font. I found the pictures very cute, and my girls loved them.

This book was so cute. I think that it teaches kids a good lesson on finding something they are good at and admiring things other people may be good at. The pictures are beautiful and there isn't too much writing on each page. I really enjoyed this book.

All the Ellis children are excellent at one activity or another, and Ed worries he is not good enough to belong in the family. No matter how hard Ed tries, someone else always does something better than him. However, Stacy McAnulty's [...]

This is a great book for one-on-one sharing. It's a bit long and the pictures are small for group sharing. But Ed is a special dog, indeed!

The Ellis family has some excellent children. Ed, their dog, doesn't understand why he doesn't get the same privileges as the rest of the children. Maybe it's because he hasn't found his excellence yet?

3.5 StarsThe view of family life from the aspect of the furriest family member! Ed can't understand why he can't sit in the van, eat at the table and pee indoors etc. Well because he is the dog! It is about being good at what you are good at and not what everyone else is good at!
