#KidLitWomen – Book A Day in March (12)

Standard

See KidlitWomen for daily links to posts by the children’s lit community, in celebration of Women’s History Month and focusing on improving the climate for social and gender equality. I plan to share my favorite books focused on girl characters and/or written by women through this month.

Today I’m happy to feature Hello, Goodbye Dog, a picture book by Maria Gianferrari and illustrated by Patrice Barton. I’m a true blue dog lover so this book speaks to my heart. Moose hates goodbyes, so when Zara leaves for school, he finds a way to be with her. Zara insists he’ll behave when she reads to him. Each time, he’s dragged back home, he finds a way back. Zara comes up with the solution of training him to be a therapy dog, and so Moose is able to spend reading time with Zara and her classmates. I love how Zara is a compassionate dog lover and how she comes up with a way to relieve her dog’s distress at being left behind. Buy the book.
