My Somebody Special

My Somebody Special

by Sarah Weeks Illustrated by Ashley Wolff

One by one, doting and punctual animal parents come through the classroom door to take their offspring home. The last one left is a puppy, who now looks unmistakably woebegone. 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.
