The Stray Dog
Why this book?
A family out for a picnic in the park meets a little dog. He’s shy at first, but soon they are playing together. When it’s time to go home, the little dog stays behind, but the whole family cannot forget him. As each day of the week passes, they all wonder about him. Next Saturday cannot come soon enough, and they rush back to the park. Can they find him before the dog catcher does? My favorite book about rescuing and adopting a new friend.
