    I feel strongly about adopting over buying pets, and therefore really wanted to love this book. However, the song lyrics were not meshing with me. Without reference to a tune I found them incoherent. I also would have appreciated a direct way of listening to the song, via attached CD or QR code link, rather than being directed to look it up.

    The absolute sweetest! (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.) After seeing all the human-canine BFF packs chilling at the park, the adorable, unnamed star of this story decides that she wants a dog friend, too. But not just any dog: a rescue pup, from the animal shelter and everything.

After seeing all the human-canine BFF packs chilling at the park, the adorable, unnamed star of this story decides that she wants a dog friend, too. But not just any dog: a rescue pup, from the animal shelter and everything. After nights spent dreaming of dogs and cats and guinea pigs and rabbits, and a massive ad campaign that threatens to bury the family's refrigerator, her parents oblige. Our hero gets her pup - and saves a life, to boot. Written by singer-songwriter, composer, musician, educator, activist, and Indigenous Canadian-American Buffy Sainte-Marie, and illustrated by the talented Ben Hodson, Hey Little Rockabye: A Lullaby for Pet Adoption just oozes charm (in the best way possible). The illustrations are lovely, and their beauty only blooms brighter when coupled with Sainte-Marie's compassionate message. The narrative is pretty simple - the only text is comprised of a lullaby that Sainte-Marie sings to all of her adopted family members - but it's sweet, to the point, and nicely tailored to the intended age group of 3-7 years. I would have liked to have seen a note on animal rescue/adoption at the end; something to the tune of "6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters every year, 1.5 million of whom are euthanized. Adopt, don't shop!" (Source.) That said, I was lucky enough to read an early digital copy that still had forthcoming front and back matter, so fingers crossed. Get it if: you're a vegan parent who's desperate to find some truly animal-friendly picture books for your child; if your family is thinking about welcoming a furry family member into the fold (this could make a sweet memento for the youngest members); if you want to instill a sense of compassion and respect for nonhumans in the kids you know and love. http://www.easyvegan.info/2020/06/02/...

She then has to convince her parents to let her get the dog of her dreams. • Some highlights I enjoyed were the way it shows children about love and acceptance, that even though a pet that has been abandoned they can still bring joy and love to a new family. And I appreciated that the family in this book is of mixed race, representing more than just white families. • Thank You to the publisher for sending me this book opinions are my own. • For more of my book content check out instagram.com/bookalong

    What a marvellous idea! It’s wonderful the book also shows all sorts of animals! I love the pictures of the author’s pets at the end as well as the music so I can sing the song! The illustrations certainly compliment the words as well.

    A very sweet book, but more importantly, Buffy Sainte-Marie has a cat named Anderson Cooper
