Recipient of a Kirkus starred review! A fun, rhyming story about acceptance and looking beyond outward appearances, from the author of the award-winning SANTA'S DOG series.
Follow the adventures of Sam, an older dog adopted from an animal shelter whose new family lives next door to an old car junkyard. Confused at first by all the junk, Sam quickly adapts and helps visitors find special parts and "treasures" and also becomes friends with a host of animals who've made the junkyard their forever home. See, treasures don't have to be snazzy and new. This scruffy, old second-chance dog proves it's true!
This sweet, unique story, written in verse with playful illustrations, will capture your heart as you share in Sam’s joy of finding friends, a purpose… and most importantly, love.
In addition to promoting recycling, SECOND-CHANCE SAM is a story about starting over and making new friends that children of all ages will cherish, as it gently reminds us to be thankful for what we have, not to judge a book by its cover, and that everyone deserves a second chance.
Perfect for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
Printed in the USA, this story advocates for the adoption of shelter dogs and the publisher supports animal rescue causes.
