Love this book! From a CCI Puppy Raiser, thank you Laura for writing this book! I plan to take the book along with the puppy to local day cared. I'll read the book to children and share the joy of "becoming a hero".

Love, love, love this book. It is great for ALL readers and dog lovers, and just those of us that love all of Numeroff's work. This meets and exceeds her standards. I am a school librarian and I have read this one aloud several times and the kids love it every time

The text is perfect, and the illustrations are wonderful. This is a superb book for children who can't yet read through early readers. It is especially wonderful that it will introduce many children to assistance dogs.

When I saw this book, I knew I had to have it, as I often visit classrooms and scout groups to explain what service dogs do. This book offers a great window into the life of a puppy that becomes a service dog in terms young children can understand.
