    I think this is an excelent book for parents to read to their kids when they are considering getting a pet. The importance of teaching children kindness and responsability towards animals is very well ilustrated in this story. Definitely a plus.

    Parents will find this book to be a perfect tool to talk to kids about the responsability of choosing and bringing a dog home from the shelter. It is wonderful to see Jake in his own, beautiful and large back yard,

    I bought this book for my daughter because we were considering adopting a dog from a shelter. Angie Black hit a homerun with this book! This is a great book to help children understand the importance and process of adopting a shelter dog. Our family loves reading it together.
