PreSchool-Grade 2–A bullmastiff stars in this nondenominational book about God's love and support. Throughout his day, the animal faces many troubling situations. His visit to the park is ruined when the squirrels tease and throw nuts at him. He misbehaves at obedience class, worries during a visit to the vet, and gets in trouble for snatching some hot dogs at a family cookout. Each of these scenarios is paired with a brightly colored illustration and a reassuring verse. For example, a picture of the pup disconsolately watching two smart Dalmatians assist in fighting a fire is accompanied by "If you think you failed the test,/And you can't keep up with the rest,/Someone knows that you're the best/'Cause God believes in you." The dog's day ends on a happy note when he watches fireworks with other canines. Children will empathize with this lovable character. –Linda L.
