Max Talks to Me
Illustrated by Karen Ritz
A boy and his dog Max are true friends — the kind that share each other’s excitement, comfort each other when they are sad, wait together when parents are away and have fun wherever they are. By observing and listening to his dog, by sharing good times and bad, they are earning each other’s love and devotion. Parents will appreciate the information about the dog-child bond that they will find at the end of Max Talks to Me. Children will want to share their adventures and friendship over and over as they read the gentle, engaging story and look at the beautiful illustrations. Themes include communication with a dog, dog body language and behaviors, responsible pet ownership and the animal-people bond.
