Overview

“This easy-going book tells kids what they will have to do to turn their dog into a happy and fun pet, and also how to care for it in the right way. It is a useful and pleasant ‘reality check’ for all kids who are begging to have a dog of their own.”—Stanley Coren, author of many dog books, including How Dogs Think and Why Does My Dog Act That Way?

“A guide to responsible care and inspiring compassion and understanding, this book will benefit all young readers—and all dogs.”—Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian, syndicated columnist, and author of many dog books

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).

A guide to the many responsibilities involved in dog guardianship, which includes loving and protecting your companion. An excellent Humane Education teaching tool as well as an important book for families to read together before considering committing to a dog. The appended contract/checklist should be reviewed carefully by families before acquiring a dog. Recommended purchase for schools, libraries, humane educators and animal shelters. Fiction picture book. Interest level: Gr. K-3.
