Very much a how to book on how to adopt a dog. The illustrations are okay, not really the style that I personally like, still a solid effort although as mentioned more pedantic than anything else.

I loved how the pages in this book were annotated with dog facts. There is so much to notice in the pictures this book, kids will pour over the illustrations with their adult. Great for a 1:1 share session!

Great for introducing kids to responsible behaviors towards dogs! Told in a narrative format that will entertain young readers while also including useful tips and information about caring for a new pet.
