My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Super cute children’s book! I mean, being completely honest, Samantha Shannon had me at “dog”, so I was invested from the very start!

The book follows a dog named Jake who is experiencing something brand new, and in turn dealing with all the worry and anxiety that accompanies that. This is a very relatable experience for youth and adults alike. If we are being completely honest with ourselves, we were all Jake at one point in time. What better way to teach youth how to confront their anxieties then to give them a cute, fuzzy dog to relate to.

The story is well written, clear, concise and playful. I can say, without a doubt, that not only would I have loved and learned from this story as a young kid, but the kids in my family would love it as well. The interactive parts at the end make for a great opportunity to connect with your kids, and make this book a great asset for any classroom.
