With bonus information on how to support your local animal shelter—and even adopt a rescued dog of your own—this uplifting story, with adorable photographs, is the perfect companion for any dog-loving family.

Children's Literature

Emma has always wanted a dog. She got a fish, hamster, and even a guinea pig but nothing has stopped her desire to get a dog. When her parents finally said yes, she expects to go to a pet store. Instead they do some research on a place called Aunt Mary's Doghouse. After some careful consideration, Emma brings home a puppy named Dixie. Dixie loves her new home. It is like a palace. She especially likes the three comfy laps to sit on. Jackson tells an important story about making careful choices when buying a pet and the benefits of adopting. The photographs tell the true story in a caring way by focusing on sad puppy dog eyes. The pictures tell what the text does not. The reader knows Emma takes Dixie on walks while the text simply states that Emma takes care of Dixie. There are additional details about how to choose a pet and information about Aunt Mary's Doghouse. Reviewer: Julie Lodermeier
