The first in a series of 6 books teaching children about inclusion with stories that highlight unique families, individuals and dogs, all living their best lives.
Be aware: This book encourages empathy for animals by depicting some actions which sensitive readers may find disturbing.
We do this because we firmly believe that exposing children to animal mistreatment at a young age leads to less animal mistreatment.
Daisy doesn't understand any of the rules. She lived on the street for a long time. She doesn't know why she can't chew that tasty remote control; she doesn't know why she has to go outside to pee; she doesn't understand why she can't grab things off the counter. Daisy new owners love her but Daisy is afraid they will send her away because they get frustrated when she makes mistakes. Daisy must learn to live within the rules; her owners must learn to practice patience.
