Toby noticed a little black puppy in the lane when he and his dad were riding their bicycles on a back road in Vermont. Toby got off his bicycle and went near the puppy to see if he was hurt. The pup felt so soft and cuddly to Toby when he picked him up. The pup was alone and looked fine, and he did not have his parents anywhere near him, so Toby wanted to take him home. Toby's father agreed to it and they decided to name the pup Tarragon and call him Tara for short. Toby couldn't wait to take the pup back home and teach him some new tricks.
A New Puppy: The Adventures of Tara and Pep Pep by Wanda L. Roberts is an adorable book for all dog lovers and many readers will find the story real and relatable. The illustrations are as delightful as the story and give it a good pace and movement. The exercise at the end of the book makes it fun and interactive to young readers, and also makes it a good book for tutors to use in classrooms and school libraries when learners are doing activities. The book can be used for read-aloud and storytelling sessions too at home, and readers will be eagerly waiting for the next book. The life lesson of being compassionate towards rescue dogs have been brought out beautifully through the story of Toby, his dad, and Tara, and will encourage readers to take care of rescue dogs.
