Dog lovers of all ages are sure to delight in the relaxed, heartwarming story of Lady, the refined and civilized cocker spaniel, and Tramp, the frisky mutt who steals her heart. Kids who are adjusting to a new little sibling will relate to Lady’s concerns about the arrival of her owner’s new baby, and will be reassured by the happy outcome. The theme also reinforces the importance of not judging others. Originally published in 1955, this charming story has all the elements of a classic Disney tale: action, adventure, love, and friendship.
Tie-in Activity: Bring your child along to a dog shelter and spend a couple hours petting and playing with the pooches, filling food and water bowls, and cleaning cages. Take it a step further by designing posters or writing letters appealing to people to adopt a pet.
