Candace’s Playful Puppy is a picture book for ages 4 to 8 that teaches kids:
How to be faithful to your commitments
To never give up when you face a tough situation
That patience is a skill that takes a lot of practice and hard work
When Candace’s new pup, Freckles, doesn’t pay attention to her instructions, Candace’s patience is tested and her excitement over the new pet quickly fades. Freckles escapes … but ends up making a muddy return. Candace realizes that being a great dog mommy isn’t as easy as she thought.
