Review: Jaya and her group of friends are all dog and puppy crazy but none of them have a puppy for their own. Jaya’s aunt gets a dog rescue come in that is pregnant with six puppies and all the children decided to find a way to convince their parents to let them each have one of her puppies.
I really loved the group of friends they were all so individual and different to each other which have their friendship group such an amazing dynamic. They were the perfect group of best friends. I adored how much they wanted to help each other and help find ways to convince their parents.
They were all really smart and responsible children and I like that even though they were it wasn’t an easy yes from their parents as having a dog is a responsibility, I love that is book will teach that to children reading that may also be wanting a puppy.
I do highly recommend this book, its a great young reader book, it’s really easy and fun to read, the characters are all amazing, the illustrations are beautiful and it teaches them a lot about puppies and care for puppies but in a really fun way.
