A Birthday Ball of Happiness: Dog story for kids

Written by David Shalem

Illustrated by Julia Po

Danny has a birthday coming up. When his mom asks for gift suggestions, Danny asks for a dog. That is the last thing his mom wanted to hear. She objects and argues dogs are messy, need to be walked and trained, and need constant supervision.

Danny continues to plead until his mother reluctantly gives in. When they arrive at the animal shelter, mom shies away. Will Danny convince her? If he succeeds, what problems will he need to solve? Can he become a responsible pet owner?

This is a cute picture book for preschoolers and primary grade children who love animals, especially dogs. It would be a good book for families to read together before considering a dog as a pet.
