Chase Gets a Medal is filled with colorful illustrations that young readers will love as they learn that dogs can be much more than pets to play with in the back yard.
Meet Chase, a friendly black and white dog. One day he wanders so far from home he gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter. Sitting in a cage, he feels sorry for himself until a kind woman rescues him and takes him to a park each day. Seeing how well he relates to children and adults, she suggests he become a therapy dog, a special dog that visits people who are sick or lonely or just need a friend.
The tests to become a therapy dog are hard. Will he be up to it? Can he control his impulse to munch on a treat that has been left on the ground? Or can he be patient and devote himself to erasing the loneliness of a sick child in the hospital or bring a warm touch to a woman in a nursing home? Find out as you read this heart-warming book about love, compassion, and kindness.
