Good Rosie!

Reviewed by:

Rosie is a good dog, but sometimes she feels lonely…
Rosie and her owner, George spend a lot of time together, enjoying their meals and going for walks in the park.  When Rosie meets other dogs, she feels lonely, when she sees them playing together.  Rosie is uncertain how to make friends and learns the trials and joys of making dog friends.
This gentle story about a dog would be suitable for how to socialize your dog and/or for teaching young children to venture out into the bigger world of making friends. The gentle, softly coloured illustrations add to the sweetness of the story.
Recommended: Character Education: Friendship & Health: Social Interactions and Pets for primary children.
