An avid animal lover, Laura has always wanted to write a book about service dogs. In 2016, with co-creator Sean Hanrahan, she released the first book of a new children’s series celebrating dogs with incredible jobs. Raising a Hero supports Canine Companions for Independence and represents all those –human and canine– helping children, adults and veterans with disabilities and special needs.
From the New York Times bestselling author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie comes the story of Max, a lovable and determined puppy with a lot to learn on his adventure of becoming someone’s life-changing friend and helper.
