I am so happy that I preordered this book for my grandchildren. It has some sadness involved, but a very happy ending. The book has a special message that involves people with disabilities and their service dogs; it is told within the framework of a beautiful love story ❤️. The illustrations are very well done. My favorite page is the one of Jessica & Rescue lying together in the hospital bed; he is comforting her in a way only her service dog could - no words, just LOVE! This is a wonderful addition to any child's book collection.
