Jake the Growling Dog Goes to Doggy Daycare: A Children’s Book about New Experiences, Friendship, Stress Relief, and Kindness
by Samantha Shannon

This was such a cute book with a good source of education with it. Jake is nervous and worried about going to doggy daycare. For him this is a really stressful situation. I really enjoyed how his friends were able to help him get through this and he was able to realize there was fun to be had once he let himself get past his apprehension. The illustrations in this book were awesome and the activities in the back were helpful and fun. I think this book is good for all ages. I read it to my granddaughters and they loved it. I recommend this book.

This is the first book that I have read from this author and I’m glad I did. My son and I read this book together and we both loved it. This book is about overcoming obstacles, kindness, and friendship. This is the second book of the series and now my son and I are going to read the first one as well. My son learned a lot from this book.

Jake the dog is very scared about going to daycare. He doesn’t know what to expect so it makes him not want to go. Jake is so afraid he runs away but his best friend Neet helps him along the way. Will Jake overcome his fear and meet new friends or will he be too afraid?

As with the first Jake book I thought it was a wonderful children’s story. It has an easy to follow storyline with a lovely message behind it and Jake is such a fun character too. There were some great talking points for the children also which were really useful. The book was beautifully illustrated; it was bright and colourful – very engaging for children! I look forward to Jakes next adventure! This is a definite must read for children of all ages!

5 stars!
The story was adorable and the illustrations were perfect. The colors and scenery in the book I think, would appeal to children. The story itself is a great lesson in learning that new experiences may be scary at first but, you may come to love every minute. I really enjoyed how Neet was Jake’s best friend and followed him to daycare and gave him the support and motivation he needed to be self confident. The exercises at the end of the book are a sweet way to get involved and talk to children about their confidence and teach them it’s okay to be scared but it will pass.

What an adorable book! Jake the Growling Dog Goes to Doggy Dare Care by Samantha Shannon and Illustrations by, Lei Yang. This wonderful children’s book is about a dog named Jake, who tends to growl a lot, who gets to go to day care for the first time. The story talks about fears and anxieties. Also, how to overcome some of those fears and anxieties. I think it was a great way for kids to understand that it is going to be okay for their dogs to go to day care as well as for them to go to day care as well. The illustrations where fun and colorful. There were portrayed the story very well, which I think made the story just that much better! I was thoroughly impressed with this book and will definitely suggest it to people with little ones!

Who doesn’t love a sweet and bright new children’s book to share with your children? I have read another one of Samantha Shannon’s Jake the Growling Dog books to my younger children and they loved it time and again. This made it a pretty easy choice to scoop up the next one in the series to share with them. In a time when the world if full of stressors for our children this book gives them some sweet subtle lessons in how to deal with the big changes that they don’t understand any more than we do. I loved the bright illustrations and how fun and sweet the story keeps things even when the subject at hand is a deep and heavy one at times. I look forward to sharing this many many times with the littles in my life for many years to come. This is also a fabulous choice for a gift because who doesn’t want a new book even as a kiddo!?

I picked this book up out of sheer curiosity. I love children’s books, I read them all the time. My boys are older, but still it was great fun reading this book together. My older one really enjoyed it too.

This is a story of a dog Jake who has to go to a daycare for the first time, and he is very apprehensive about it. He is used to the comforts of his home and his little friends, whom he has befriended at home. One of his friends, the squirrel Neet, comforts him saying he will accompany him to the daycare. Jake is relieved and both Neet and Jake head off to the day care.

Jake finds new friends there and has lot of fun at the daycare. He is well fed and taken care of. He has a great experience. It is a very sweet story everyone can relate to. The apprehension and fear of Jake when he sets off to a new place and the comfort he finds when his friend Neet agrees to go with him are so simply yet beautifully explained. And this is not for Jake alone, isn’t it the problem each one of us face when we go to a new place? And think about the relief which sweeps over us when someone familiar accompanies us??
A beautiful book !!

Such a cute story. Many kids, whether it’s daycare, school, first sleepover or even anything new, can benefit from this book. And who better to help ease their fears than Jake the Growling dog!
Jake had a friend help him see that doggy daycare wasn’t as scary as he thought it would be. Super cute, loved the colorful pictures. This series can go so far and cover so many things and I can’t wait to read whatever comes in the future.
