Summary, etc.:
Madeline Finn is training her dog Star to become a therapy dog. Will they pass the test? A beautiful story of empathy, perseverance, and community from Lisa Papp. Madeline Finn and Star are off to Walker Oaks, a retirement community where Star will take his tests to become a therapy dog. Accompanied by Mom, Mrs. Dimple, and Bonnie the library dog, Madeline and Star make their way through a variety of challenges and meet several new friends. But Madeline Finn can't stop thinking about an elderly man in a wheelchair who never smiles. Is there something she and Star can do to help?Author-illustrator Lisa Papp's empathetic, feel-good story explores the therapy dog training process and provides a realistic and appealing example of a young person making a difference. Paired with warm, gentle illustrations, this book (much like Papp's previous award-winning titles Madeline Finn and the Library Dog and Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog) is ideal for social emotional learning and discussions about self-esteem, volunteering, community, and-of course-therapy animals.Also available:Madeline Finn and the Library DogMadeline Finn and the Shelter Dog Inside jacket.
