    by Sarah Weeks and Ashley Wolff

Children can identify with the puppy's anxiety at being the last one picked up, yet share his tail-wagging relief when his "somebody special" finally arrives.

Text Excerpt:
You couldn't really tell about Mama's brain just from looking at her, but it was obvious as soon as she spoke. She had a high voice, like a little girl's, and she only knew twenty-three words. I know this for a fact, because we kept a list of the things Mama said tacked to the inside of the kitchen cabinet. Most of the words were common ones, like good and more and hot, but there was one word only my mother said, soof.
