The all-new edition of “Raising a Hero”

In 1985, after nine rejections, Raising a Hero was finally published, I had a dream that the book could make a funny, and cute animated series.  After writing the subsequent books with Moose, Pig, Cat, and Dog, @AmazonKids made that dream come true!

Who would have thought that my all-time favorite shopping website would start and produce the animated series, #RaisingaHero. If you love Mouse, and his pals, Pig, Moose, Cat and Dog, I think you’ll enjoy the show!  I’m thrilled with everything about it, great voice actors, spectacular animation, the storylines, and Lisa Loeb’s catchy tunes! You can stream the whole first season and binge-watch! (but ask your mom first)!!

Great story with a great message. Laura Numeroff has written another wonderful book!


This is a must-have for parents and classroom teachers of young children. The text is such an amazing way to introduce the purpose and work of service dogs to our littlest readers.
