There really is nothing like a warm puppy, and who doesnt love a puppy? Gabriela certainly is no exception to this rule, and she really takes taking care of her dogs very seriously. Based on a very real girl named Gabriela and her very real passionMoreThere really is nothing like a warm puppy, and who doesnt love a puppy? Gabriela certainly is no exception to this rule, and she really takes taking care of her dogs very seriously. Based on a very real girl named Gabriela and her very real passion for her two dogs, your child can learn a lot from our story about our little Gabriella. Enjoy the illustrations and the poetry of Penelope Dyan and take the time to discuss pet possibilities and responsibilities with your children. If your child has a pet remind him or her of the need to interact with it, to take care of it and to love it. And if your child just wants a pet, remind your child of the responsibilities that come with pet ownership. (Gabriela takes her pet ownership very seriously, and so should your child.) A former K-12 teacher, published in The Kindergartner, as well as in Instructor Magazine and in Humpty Dumpty childrens magazine, and an award winning author, Penelope Dyan has put her expertise, love and knowledge of children to work in each of these childrens books that serve as supplements to the Penny Mouse Early Reader Series. Dyan is also the author of Surfer Girl the first in a teen book series about a girl named Summer who surfs the waves of the ocean and life as she searches for her legacy. Surfer Girl was the winner of best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival and is also recognized by Girls Voices In Literature Database, Miami University, Florida.
