Let's meet Noah in the storybook Noah's New Puppy by Richard Rice with a contribution by Geri Henderson. Noah loved his father very much and they played games together. One day his father left Noah and his mother and, as the days passed, Noah felt sad and missed his father even more. After a year came and went, his dad returned home. Noah was very happy and looked forward to playing with his dad but his father was quiet, sad, and did not want to leave his room. Noah decided to go with his mother and get a puppy. His father was happy when he saw the pup. They started playing together and enjoyed celebrating holidays and birthdays and all the things they had missed. The love of the pup and Noah's love brought back their feelings of being a family again.

The story tackles the subject of PTSD in a manner that is relatable to young readers. Vincent G. Rice's illustrations are colorful and lively and they make the characters and the scenes vivid. This is a good story for adults to read with their children and will encourage communication between family members. The Parents' Guide at the end of the book is helpful and motivating to parents when it comes to dealing with their children. It is a good storybook for tutors and parents to read out loud to youngsters, especially if they have someone like Noah in their classroom or at home. Noah's New Puppy by Richard Rice is a book for both children and adults alike and will help bring back the good times shared between them all over again.
