A cute black puppy is waiting in a pet store for a kid of his own. And when he finally gets a new boy, the puppy does everything he can to take care of his new boy: he helps his new boy eat dinner, dig holes, and teaches him to play tug-of-war. The beautiful illustrations by Lynn Munsinger and sweet story by Joan Phillips make this a perfect book for snuggle-together time.
Tie-in Activity: Babies love animals and the sounds they make. Dance a few of your baby’s toy animals in front of her, adding woofs or meows or other sounds. Or have an older child "care" for a stuffed animal—while you do all the talking to imitate the story.
