Released June 2010

Thinking about getting a puppy for your child? If so, this picture book features a youngster and his dog getting to know one another. “What’s that puppy doing?” asks the child as he looks at his new dog.

“She’s sleeping. Puppies need lots of sleep,” is the answer.

When the puppy awakens, stretches and gives a big yawn, the child greets her with, “Hello, Puppy!”

Now it’s time for the two to get to know one another. More questions follow: “What’s that puppy looking for?”, “Why is that puppy sniff, sniff, sniffing all around?” and “Now what is that puppy doing?”  The answer to each question tells the child (and the reader) a little about puppy behavior

Here’s an ideal way to introduce a youngster to what having a little dog around the house might be like. A smart parent will use this book to discuss caring for a pet and how a new dog should be introduced into the household.
