A sweet introduction to owning a pet that is perfect for readers of The Most Magnificent Thing and A Ball for Daisy.
When a little girl gets a new puppy, they have a lot to learn about each other. The new friends can be shy, messy, and sometimes get into trouble. They get lost, but they always get found. Their friendship may be a lot of work--but at the end of the day, they love each other!
Experience the excitement and mystery surrounding a new pet (and a new friend) in this joyful picture book from acclaimed author and illustrator Karl Newsom Edwards.

Toddlers and puppies have a lot in common! Endless energy, love the outdoors, messy, and the list goes on. But, we love them anyways!

Read this with your kiddo and then ask if the "new friend" is the child or the dog! It works both ways.
