What else is this about?: Responsibility and teaching children that parents actually do have a point to their rules
There is just so much to love about this book, but most of all it is a lesson in patience and responsibility for any young person wanting a puppy or something else entirely.
Rosie is an energetic young girl who has a younger brother she wants to keep out of her room, and a deep longing for a puppy. Her father Dave surprises her one morning when he tells her that he and her mum are considering a rescue dog instead of a puppy. Her mum is as clear on what she wants in a dog as Rosie is, and a puppy might not suit everyone’s needs. But Rosie is thrilled at the prospect of the dog and eagerly awaits her father’s return from the pound.
