From the author and illustrator of Our New Kittens, an empowering story for young children about training a new puppy

It’s a big day for Patch the puppy as her girl decides to take her for her first walk outside of the yard. Patch needs to learn her manners, but the playful pup is sometimes too excited to listen! With patience and perseverance, Patch’s girl guides her new canine companion through basic commands including “sit,” “stay,” and “down,” making sure to dole out plenty of treats and belly rubs for a job well done along the way.

This delightful story from author, performer, and children’s librarian Theo Heras is a great introduction for young children about caring for and training a puppy, complemented by Alice Carter’s warm, inviting illustrations and a sturdy format complete with padded cover.

“The genuine love expressed between owner and pet fortifies the responsibilities Patch’s owner undertakes.”—Kirkus Reviews

My Puppy Patch is a wonderful story that introduces, or reinforces, how to care for and train a new puppy….[A] great choice for a family looking to bring a new dog into the home or for any child who loves pets. Just enough tension, adorable pictures, and a sweet and simple story make it perfect for multiple read-throughs. Highly Recommended.”—CM Magazine
