Lucy Rescued (Hardcover) (Harriet Ziefert)
about this item
Wha-ooo-ooo-roo!" Lucy is having a little trouble adjusting to her new home. Droll illustrations pair with a charming and insightful text to offer a relatable portrait of what it's like to get to know someone new, and to take on their concerns as if they were your own. Kids will recognize and feel empathy both for Lucy, a shelter dog who sometimes tries her adopter's patience, and for the little girl who helps him become part of the family. Featuring kids' enduring love for both dogs and stuffed animals, Harriet Ziefert and Barroux's latest collaboration hits all the right-est and brightest notes in this simply wise and wisely simple doggy tale.
When Lucy is adopted from the local animal shelter, her new family thinks that they have chosen a perfect pet. And she is, right up to the minute she starts to howl, and howl, and howl some more. Treats, tricks, a soft red bed, lullabies, and even doggy therapy cannot stop her "Wah-ooo-ooo-roo!" It is the little girl figures out that Lucy needs a comfy friend (her own stuffed animal) and Lucy who figures out that she needs as many as she can get her paws on. And then, all is well.
