No Room for a Pup!
Mia wants a dog more than anything. But according to her mom, there is just NO ROOM in their very small apartment. Then one day, when she and her grandma are visiting a friend who is giving away puppies, Mia falls in love with a small spotted pup that crawls into her lap. She knows she just has to convince her mom to let her keep him! With help from Grandma—and some of her pet-owning friends—can Mia show her mom how much room there really is in their apartment?
In this charming picture book from Elizabeth Suneby and Laurel Molk, an I-want-a-dog story meets the Yiddish folk tale about how things could always be worse—to comic effect! With a narrative and illustrations that are action-packed, this is a terrific read-aloud. The timely messages about the importance of gratitude for what one has, the need for generosity and the inclusion of others—"there's always room for one more"—resonate.
Full-color illustrations were created with “watercolor, pencil, bits of paper, tea bags, other sundry items, and a dash of Photoshop.”
