Getting a dog can be a wonderful moment in a family’s life—or the beginning of a bad situation for everyone. In Are You Ready for Me?, engaging text and colorful pictures show two children at an animal adoption center, trying to decide if they are prepared to care for a dog for its entire life.

There’s a contract at the end of the book for parents and kids to check off. An online kit is available to those who want more information about living with a dog.

Claire Buchwald is an educator and the author of four children’s picture books, including Max Talks to Me (The Gryphon Press, 2007).

Artist Amelia Hansen has illustrated twenty previous titles, including At the Dog Park with Sam and Lucy (The Gryphon Press, 2006) and It’s Raining Cats—and Cats! (The Gryphon Press, 2009).
