This book has made my face hurt from smiling so much I didn't know what to expect from this children's book, but I really love it. There are so many layers to the book that had me smiling bigger and bigger with each page. It is such a smart way to teach children and adults what it really means to welcome a furry family member into their life- while also teaching the value of family bond. I especially love how it was able to capture not just an immediate family, but also grandma too! The inclusion of seniors is so little in society so this was so heartwarming and inspiring to me. I highly recommend this book... AND I recommend you to share it! To family, to friends... To your local shelter... It is a fantastic way to teach you and your little ones how to invite a lifetime of love from adoption and the value of family. Read more
