Synopsis: When the puppy comes to live with his new mom, he is nervous. After all, his mom has stripes and he doesn’t. But his mom says she likes that they look different, and soon the puppy likes it, too. (And who cares what anyone else thinks!)

The puppy’s new mom does all the things other parents do. She plays with him, takes care of him, and sometimes even makes him mad! But that’s okay, because when he’s feeling sad, she knows just what to say.

Review: This is a super sweet story of adoption or fostering. It is geared towards older children more than those adopted straight from birth. Puppy knows from the get go that this is his new home and he is different from his new mom. At first, he tries to be just like her, even paints on stripes, but his new mom wipes it all away and tells him she loves him just the way he is. In the end, they end up embracing their differences–and even though it’s not easy being a new family they’re going to continue to work on it.  This would be a perfect book to give to families that have either just adopted older-ish kids or who are maybe even just fostering.
