If We Could Get a Dog…Henry Finds His Forever Home
By: Susan Lynn Ford
“With its timely and timeless message that people should not have a pet without the love and commitment it requires to truly give a pet a good home, "If We Could Get a Dog" is upbeat and inspiring with another message for young readers -- Many pets find "forever" homes that are loving and safe, and theirs could be one of those homes.” – The Midwest Book Review
About the Book
Many animals need homes, but also many pets are not properly cared for and some people don’t seem to take into account the commitment it requires to take care of a pet throughout its life.
If We Could Get a Dog…Henry Finds His Forever Home is about adopting a dog, and all the preparation, thought, consideration, and work that goes into that decision. This story is easily read by a child of eight years old and up, but also can be read to younger children by their parents. Emily’s story is entertaining but can also help initiate important discussions about getting a pet before taking that step. People should not have a pet without the love and commitment it requires to truly give a pet a good home. Many pets find “forever” homes that are loving and safe.
