Sammie's Flat Dog (Shockley)
For Pet Lovers of All Ages
Sammie wants a dog even more than she wants ice cream with sprinkles, but her moms think she is too young. Determined to love a puppy, Sammie takes care of a paper picture of a dog and carries it with her every day.
"Sammie's Flat Dog shares a message about compassion, responsibility, and the value of adopting a pet in the form of a thoroughly enchanting children's story. With more parents like Mama Stacy and Mama Carla and more children like Sammie in the world, the work of humane societies, animal shelters, and rescue groups everywhere would be so much easier."
— Sharon Harvey, President & CEO, Cleveland Animal Protective League
Sammie's Flat Dog is a read-along delight that will appeal to all ages. Author and illustrator Gary Alan Shockley includes fun explorations and activities hidden on every page.
