Maverick and Me is such a wonderful book for kids. I love that it focuses on the importance of adoption rather than shopping all those puppy stores. Shelters are filled with dogs (and other animals alike) just waiting for their forever family and this book is a great read to show the love of adoption. Having adopted our dog as a few weeks old puppy abandoned on the side of the road with her mom and siblings this tears at my heart strings. Katherine Schwarzenegger does such a wonderful job showing us Charlotte's love of Maverick and Maverick finding his forever home. The pictures are adorable and full of emotion. When you're looking for your next dog pet visit your local animal shelter and give one of the doggies a forever home. I received a free copy in advance for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Maverick and Me made me think of my own children and actually several times where we were in the same position, and ended up with a new member of our family. The author introduces us to the rescuer and the store that opens it heart for a place where rescued animals can find forever homes. All are needed in the in the process to help find a new forever home. There are so many dogs in need, and this story will tug at your heartstrings, but with such a happy ending. Just be aware that there is a need, and this shares with the young ones, a sweet story along with delightful, colorful illustration. I received this book through Worthy Kids/Ideas Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
This is a fantastic children's book. I love the story and the illustrations. This really makes me want to adopt a pet. That is what I did when I got my last cat. This made me laugh and cry. I think that little children and parents will fall in love with this story. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
This delightful children's picture book is definitely for those who love dogs and would-be dog lovers. Also, it focuses on the need to adopt a dog rather than shop for one. It weighs heavily on the appeal that little forlorn lost puppies who are neglected have on tender hearted individuals and the universal appeal of a child with a puppy. Katherine Schwarzenegger has written a sweet story involving Maverick who is the forlorn lost and neglected puppy. Found by a caring lady who takes him to a pet store. The owner of the store encourages her to take the puppy home and clean him up a bit returning soon to an "adopt a dog" event at the store. After little Maverick gets a bit of tender care, he still doesn't have a lot of appear to some of the pet seekers. Finally a charming little girl adopts Maverick and they are forever in love in their "forever home." The illustrations by Phyllis Harris are sweet and charming and beautifully capture the emotions of seekers and doggies alike. The joy of being in a "forever home" is exuberantly displayed in the ending pages of the story. A lovely book about a way to provide homes for dogs and have that sweet pet of your own without adding to the population of pets being sold in the market.

This rescue dog story came at the perfect time. Our friends recently rescue an old dog who had many health issues (among other issues!) and the community rallied around to help him. Maverick and Me is a simple and lovely story about a dog named Maverick who was in a similar situation. When Maverick is found, he was hopeful to get a new home. The illustrations are cute and help to tell the story to children (and adults) who want to read a story of connection and how we can make a difference in a small or big way.
