About: "Are you ready for me?" Almost every parent has heard the question, "please, can we get a dog?" "Are you ready for me?" by Minnesota author Claire Buchwald, is a book that will help families answer that question. In the text, a dog and a pup, waiting to be chosen at an animal adoption center, ask two children questions about how they will be treated. Children and parents will recognize what it will mean on a daily basis to bring a dog into a family.
Families who chose to adopt a dog can use this delightfully illustrated book to prepare for and to anticipate the big day. Parents can also draw on the book to review responsibilities of family members to pets they already have.
