Love Those Pups
All of you animal lovers out there will truly be touched by this book. Maverick and Me is about a puppy who is found by a caring woman. She takes him to a local animal shelter for an adoption day. Everyone keeps passing this little pup by. At the end of the night Scarlett came in the shop with her mom. She is immediately in love with Maverick. Her mom lets her adopt the puppy and he becomes a part of their family. All of Scarlett's friends fall in love with the dog and decide they want to adopt also.
This book has been a wonderful platform for Katherine Schwarzenegger to talk about how important adopting animals is. She started out fostering puppies and that is how she found Maverick. This book is a perfect introduction before going to get a pet. I also want to mention how beautiful the illustrations are. Phyllis Harris really brought this lovely story to life.
