The absolute sweetest herunterladen!

four out of five stars

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.)

After seeing all the human-canine BFF packs chilling at the park, the adorable, unnamed star of this story decides that she wants a dog friend, too herunterladen. But not just any dog: a rescue pup, from the animal shelter and everything.

After nights spent dreaming of dogs and cats and guinea pigs and rabbits, and a massive ad campaign that threatens to bury the family’s refrigerator, her parents oblige spiele mit geld kostenlos herunterladen. Our hero gets her pup – and saves a life, to boot.

Written by singer-songwriter, composer, musician, educator, activist, and Indigenous Canadian-American Buffy Sainte-Marie, and illustrated by the talented Ben Hodson, Hey Little Rockabye: A Lullaby for Pet Adoption just oozes charm (in the best way possible) amazon produktbilder herunterladen. The illustrations are lovely, and their beauty only blooms brighter when coupled with Sainte-Marie’s compassionate message.

The narrative is pretty simple – the only text is comprised of a lullaby that Sainte-Marie sings to all of her adopted family members – but it’s sweet, to the point, and nicely tailored to the intended age group of 3-7 years bluetooth treiber kostenlos herunterladen.

I would have liked to have seen a note on animal rescue/adoption at the end; something to the tune of “6.5 million companion animals enter U.S herunterladen. animal shelters every year, 1.5 million of whom are euthanized. Adopt, don’t shop!” (Source herunterladen.) That said, I was lucky enough to read an early digital copy that still had forthcoming front and back matter, so fingers crossed.

Get it if: you’re a vegan parent who’s desperate to find some truly animal-friendly picture books for your child; if your family is thinking about welcoming a furry family member into the fold (this could make a sweet memento for the youngest members); if you want to instill a sense of compassion and respect for nonhumans in the kids you know and love online fotos downloaden.

Tonight, maybe, while the Mr. records his podcast.
 


 
Mary urges us to watch and circulate the video; please do songs bei youtube herunterladen!
