Avoiding trouble means knowing how to think ahead to avoid it. In this program, Baxter gets carried away while playing with his friends and lands in trouble. He learns the hard way that digging up the vegetable garden and neglecting his watchdog duties can get him in trouble. Thanks to Grandpaw’s advice, Baxter learns to think ahead, so if a situation looks like trouble, he can do something else instead. Baxter not only succeeds in avoiding a bad situation and resisting peer pressure, but helps friends avoid trouble, too. “Handling peer pressure isn’t so hard after all, as watchdog Baxter learns from listening to Grandpaw’s stories in this winsome puppet presentation.” — Booklist. “Useful and
entertaining.” — School Library Journal.
