Humans In-Training by Brooke Van Sickle is about a puppy who gets himself some new humans. While he had everything physically that he needed, his dog parents still had a lot to learn about the responsibility of taking care of a dog. They were selfish and didn’t know how to take care of a puppy. The puppy, realizing this, took things into his own hands and began training them himself. His humans didn’t like it at first and weren’t very happy with some of the things the pup would do such as getting rid of their socks, shoes, and underwear that they left lying around, and protecting them from the mailman and neighbors. Soon enough though, the couple caught on, and from then on the pup's life was so much easier.

I really enjoyed this book because it reminded me of when my husband and I first got our dogs. We were young and didn’t realize how much attention a dog needed compared to a cat. It took us a bit of time but we caught onto the late bathroom calls and understanding what they needed. It’s a great book for a child because it helps them understand that having an animal is a big responsibility and that they need the owner to take care of them. The book is nicely written and has an adorable main character that a child can’t help but fall in love with. The illustrations are beautifully done and go perfectly with the storyline. I think Brooke Van Sickle has done a wonderful job with this book and I can’t wait to see what else she comes out with.
