This book can show you how to train a dog This can also show you the real strength of true friendship You know the line True friends always stick by each other in hard times well that s exactly what these two friends do.
Am I the only one who finds these contemporary American Girl books painfully boring Sorry, but I lack the self confidence to say no doesn t really seem all that exciting when compared to Addy s escape from slavery and saving her mom from drowning, for example.I think the spotlight on service dogs was admirable, but was otherwise irritated and disappointed Nicki lives on a pig farm I noticed that how the animals are treated and how they are ultimately killed for food was largely skated past, if i [...]

Nicki s mom is going to have twins and is bed ridden Her job is to train dogs to be serves dogs Nicki s mom ask her to train her next dog This dog is a challenge and a lot of work can Nicki do it
It was a great book
I read this in 2015, this is my second time reading it and it is still my favorite AG Girl of the Year book.
People ask me what is the one book I can t get enough of Well, let me think Oh, that s right it s Nicki by Ann Howard Creel This book is fiction, but provides a lot of factual information about service dogs and how to become a puppy raiser The main character in this book is Nicki Flemming Nicki needs to learn how to say no First off, every night she gets asked to do a bunch of chores she doesn t have time to do, but you know Nicki she says, Yes Then her mom finds out that she her mom, not Nicki [...]
Nicki Fleming has a gift with animals When she is asked to train a dog to be a service dog she can t say no, even if it means taking on responsibility and having to give up some things she LOVES doing When the puppy sprocket arrives nicki is releaved by his cuteness, but that means nothing when it comes to training Sprocket is a HUGE handfull, and he uses all of nicki s compassion to keep on with his training She knows that one day procket will make someone s life a lot better, and that makes a [...]
Not being able to say no can get you into all kinds of commitments as Nicki has learned Wow, could I relate to this girl The emotions she feels and the situations she finds herself in all really ring true in this story about a girl raising a service dog one of those projects she just couldn t say no to I like how she grew and changed in this book, and think every girl who has trouble saying no would benefit from reading this story.
This book is about a girl who can t say no Many adults have the same problem My issue is her parents can t seem to understand her lack of saying no and that they, actually, end up piling on the poor thing Beyond that, I didn t much care about training a service dog, but I suppose I learned something new through reading this one.
Nicki is qa natural with animals when the chance to train an animal she never ever says No.i think she can t say no to anything even if it will be harder when Sprocket the puppy turns out to be a handful, it takes all Nicki s compassion to keep on the traininge knows that one day, his dog will leave her but she wants to take the risk
Cute story about a girl who learns to train a dog to be a service dog and adjust to changes in friendships At first I was wondering why her parents didn t step in and prevent her from taking on too much, but it got better by the end.
Nicki Has so many tasks to do, and has trouble saying no when she s asked to do She is now having chores at home, friend problems, and is know training a service dog puppy What is a girl supposed to do
I think most pre teen girls will enjoy this book about a young girl, Nicki, learning the value of saying no at the right time and the right place Well written Not too forced or pretentious Worthy of being An American Girl book.
i had to do this book for a book report and i loved it sooooooooo much.

Nicki seems like a great person I really enjoyed reading her story and looking forward to the next one.
A typical, predictable children s chapter book.
