My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Watch as friends for a lifetime are formed. Man’s best friend watches a baby and notices the differences. I think this book does a great job at telling a story from what a dog’s perspective may be when I new baby comes home. A wonderful book to introduce children to the bond between animals and themselves. Dogs that grow up with children are extremely protective and loyal. This board book is perfect for little hands and sturdy enough to withstand. Wonderful illustrations bring it all together!
