Be More Dog
“My dog Sam has a superpower. He doesn't wear a costume. He can't fly. And he definitely can't make himself invisible. Sam's superpower is happiness.”
Sam can find happiness in the most unexpected places—a smelly old boot, a deflated ball, even in a muddy puddle! When Dad leaves for work, Sam's young owner needs a little help to be happy again. Can Sam show his best friend how to be a little less sad and a little more dog?
This funny, heartwarming picture book is about finding joy in simple things. With uplifting text from Caroline Crowe and engaging, lively illustrations by Carlos Velez, this feel-good story celebrates the connection between children and pets and encourages us all to be more dog!
