This book is about a sweet little labradoodle who gets lost after he is left out of playtime by his friends. Through his adventure he discovers that it is okay to be different and makes new friends who help him get back home. Unlike his friends, the little puppy struggled to catch a ball or even play with the others and he was left out. Struggling with sadness, he gets lost, but makes new friends along the way who helped him get over his insecurities.
The book teaches children about kindness and friendship and accepting your friends for their differences. This is a great book for kids with anxiety and kids with disabilities and will have a positive impact on them.
The illustrations are fabulous, and the rhyming text go hand in hand to make a it a perfect combination and most importantly, my son loved it and it is a very attractive book for visual learners.
