“When a New Puppy Joins His Home, Harold Learns About Love”
It’s hard to be a good dog, but Harold, the golden retriever, really tries. Then the Dad brings home Prince, a silly little puppy that the Dad says is smart and brave.
Prince! “Smart and brave!” Harold can hardly believe his ears! And, even worse, when Prince does a doggy-doo right in the house, the Dad blames Harold!
Harold thinks Prince is a poopy little puppy. How is he going to live with him in his house?
Kids with baby brothers and sisters will sympathize with Harold.
This book is laugh-out-loud funny for kids and parents. Perfect for early readers and the Common Core. Adults are allowed to laugh along as well.
An entertaining read.
This is a really cute story told through the perspective of Harold, the existing dog of the house, who is confused and a little put off by the arrival of a new puppy in his family. His humans are not understanding him, he’s getting blamed for the new puppy’s mischief, and he feels overlooked. An entertaining read that is a perfect read for a family getting a new pet or a new sibling. The storyline has a great message and is present in a fun way.
