Jake is off to daycare, but he’s worried about what’s in store.
Going somewhere new can be scary–trying something different, even more.
How will he get ready, and what will help him through?
What will bring him comfort and help prepare him for something new?
Jake loves his comfy bed, close friends, and favorite trail, but now he’s off to Doggy Daycare for the first time. He’s worried others won’t like him and run away, and he doesn’t want to leave the place he knows best. His best friend Neet is there to help him, along with a surprise from his family, but will Jake overcome his worries and have fun? And is he the only one nervous about being in a new place? Kindness, comfort, and aid from loved ones fill this tale with love and compassion.
Jake the Growling Dog is a fun-loving tale about new adventures, friendship, handling stress, and overcoming fear.
Author and licensed educational counselor, Samantha Shannon, brings Jake back for this second tale about a dog who is different from other dogs and critters. After making some new friends at home in his first book when others began to see him as the sweet and kind dog he is despite his growly voice, now Jake’s family takes him somewhere new.We’ve all been nervous at one time or another about a new experience, and Jake’s tale not only shows kids that they aren’t alone in having those butterflies in their tummy it also gives them gentle ideas on how to handle those worries and fears while having a blast with their favorite growly character and his furry friend.
Includes Conversation Starters and Activities for Children, Families, Schools, and Counselors to help with confidence, stress, and preparing for new experiences.

Samantha’s love for creatures great and small has led her to incorporate animals in all of the books, from eagles to cheetahs! Throughout her life, Samantha’s family has always included a dog, and they’ve always been more than pets. They were fur-brothers, sisters, and babies.
When Samantha had her first child in 2009, she wanted to write a picture book based on her sister’s dog, Jake. While visiting her sister in the Pacific Northwest, Samantha realized that Jake growled all the time. He growled while playing frisbee, getting an ear rub, running, and even when he was sleeping! Despite his unusual choice of noisemaking, Jake is a sweet dog, which makes him the perfect character for a children’s picture book.
With Samantha’s background in educational counseling, Jake’s first story includes a character education & loving-kindness activity for families, schools, & counselors. Jake’s story speaks to all of us about accepting, and appreciating, the differences in others–both caring attitudes we need in our diverse and beautiful world.
