JJ The American Street Dog and How He Came to Live In Our House is the first book in a series by Diane Rose-Solomon, a Certified Humane Educational Specialist. The story addresses animal adoption issues using colorful, whimsical illustrations to tell the story of Maya and her family.
Children ages four to nine will identify with six-year-old Maya who has wanted a dog for as long as she can remember.
When her uncle finds a homeless puppy (JJ), Maya begs to keep him. But her mom isn’t sure. In the end, Maya and her family learn that adopting a rescue pet is a win-win. JJ gets a loving home, and Maya gets the dog she’s always wanted.
JJ The American Street Dog and How He Came to Live in Our House is anexciting and uplifting story that teaches kids and adultsabout animal homelessness, basic animal care, spay and neuter (worded appropriately for children), pet adoption and the unconditional love people get from their family pet.
The timing of the book is perfect as LA just voted to ban the sale of commercially bred pets in pet stores.
