About the book:

Kevin has a beautiful new puppy! But what should he name her? Kevin knows the puppy is special, but he’s about to find out just how smart she is when she helps Kevin choose her own name!

My review:

When it comes to pets, they have personalities just as their human counterparts do. This is a picture book, fictionalized, about a real dog. The dog has just become best friends with his new owner who does not know what to name him.

It was fun to see all of the names that is picked and the reasons for the names but this dog has other ideas.

The book reminds us (me) that we all have an identity that makes us, us. In this case, the dog's identity could not be found until the right name came into being. Wow!

I loved the larger than life colorful pictures done by Walter Policelli. His illustrations made an already cute story even cuter.

This book gets a 5 high paws from me.

Where to find the author:

Kathryn A. Zolman never expected to write a children’s book, but when Pineapple came into her life and she heard the story of how this sweet, smart dog got her name, she thought it would make a fun book for parents to read to their children. Pineapple is a Bull Mastiff, German Shepherd, Chow mix, and much like a real pineapple, she knows how to stand tall and is very sweet on the inside!

Kathryn is an avid dog lover. Along with her husband and daughter, they have raised three Doberman Pinschers, each with their own unique personality and character. Kathryn is an advocate for not only raising children to respect all animals, but also to be thankful for the pure joy that they bring to our lives. In writing this book, Kathryn seeks to spread a positive message and hopes it will help children express more gratitude in their lives.
