‘My Perfect Dog’ by Lindsey Scarola

My Perfect Dog

Everyone is perfect in their own unique way.

This is such an important lesson we all, as childcare professionals and parents, want to instill our children. ‘My Perfect Dog’ by Lindsey Scarola is a beautifully written and illustrated children’s book that teaches this very lesson. In the story, a little boy sees all the other dogs in the neighborhood doing special tricks and he wishes that his dog could do awesome tricks for him like his homework and other tasks he would rather not do. In the end though, the young boy realizes that his dog doesn’t need to do any fancy tricks to be a better dog, his best friend is perfect just the way he is!
