Patch is a good dog. At least he tries to be—but sometimes he finds it hard to remember commands or resist chasing rabbits. Three very short stories of a boy and his dog are combined in this adorably illustrated picture book that honors the special bond between dogs and their people and between friends of all species.

Praise for Patch

"A short, funny tale that will resonate with preschoolers and new readers, as well as older children who need simple but meaningful stories." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Add this to the growing list of early reader buddies." -- Booklist       

                "Sweet and well-executed." -- School Library Journal

 "It’s great to have a pet story that emphasizes caretaking as well as affection; use this in partnership with a friendship story like Frog and Toad to talk about our comradeship with man’s best friend. " -- BCCB
