Hello Goodbye Dog

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Patrice Barton. Dog Moose loves "hello" and hates "goodbye." That dogs aren't allowed in school doesn't deter Moose from repeatedly visiting her girl Zara ("It's time for goodbye, Moose"). After Moose trains as a therapy dog for wheelchair-using Zara, it's finally "hello, Moose!" from everyone at school. Soft, expressive illustrations enhance this engaging story of a strong dog-owner bond and the school-wide benefits of therapy dogs.
