Mutt Dog by Stephen Michael King was published in 2005 and is a tender story about a homeless dog.
"In the city lives a dog who belonged to no-one. He had to be brave, and fast, and smart, just to survive. He ate whatever he could find. And looked for a new place to sleep every night."
"Go Away, you Mutt!"
In his travels, he tries to find a home, but things don't look hopeful. This story has a sweet ending and the pictures are just right for the text. If you have a dog lover in your life, they will like this story.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
