When Shawn and Kat decide to start a doggie daycare business, Bouncer becomes their first customer. They have their work cut out for them, as he has been getting into some trouble, chewing things and even

A cute story and great illustrations, a children's book about a adopting a terrier named Bouncer. They find this puppy needs lots of exercise to help curb his need to chew, and his need to chase. They trained him to help the soccer team, the tennis club, and to do some Frisbee catching, using kimchi for his reward. This book explains the need to work with your new dog, to find his strengths and what he loves to do.

We just got to preview this September release from @jollyfishpress and it was a fun read. 🐶
MOST VALUABLE PUPPY is part of the “Doggie Daycare” books, a series written by Carol Kim and illustrated by Felia Hanakata. In this soccer-themed one, Shawn and his sister, Kay, start a doggie daycare. Bouncer, a Jack Russell terrier who never seems to run out of energy or mischief, is their first customer. 🎾

My kids thought that Bouncer was a lovable troublemaker of a dog, and they thought it was so funny

This was cute, it honestly reminds me of when I had a puppy name Bandit and she would get into everything. Animals are our best friends and we all know this, I miss having a puppy or a kitten but this was very cute. I think kids would enjoy this book a lot. Who knows, someone might name their name Bouncer like the book.

A fantastic children's book for animal lovers. I really enjoyed this book and would happily recommend this author. The animals were very aptly named which I found very clever as it suited their personalities.

I imagine a child would never get tired of their parent reading this happy story to them and pointing to the illustrations because "Most Valuable Puppy" is cute, sweet and funny. Many thanks to author Carol Kim and illustrator Felia Hanakata for the wonderful time. Many thanks, too, to North Star Editions/Jolly Fish Press and NetGalley for an advanced digital copy of "Most Valuable Puppy." I'm looking forward to seeing the print edition in my favorite bookstores.

Cute story about trying to train an active puppy. A little too young for middle school, though-- definitely more early reader.

This is a super cute story that has great illustrations. Not many children's books have cute illustrations these days. This is a book about a adopting a cute little terrier named Bouncer. As new owners they find this puppy needs lots and lots of exercise to help him not to chew, and his need to chase things. They trained him to help the soccer team, the tennis club, and even in Frisbee catching.

This book explains the need to work with your new dog, to find his strengths and what he loves to do.
