Pride Puppy is the story of young child and their family are having a wonderful time together celebrating Pride Day―meeting up with Grandma, making new friends and eating ice cream. But then something terrible happens: their dog gets lost in the parade! Luckily, there are lots of people around to help reunite the pup with his family.
This rhyming alphabet book tells a lively story, with rich, colorful illustrations that will have readers poring over every detail as they spot items starting with each of the letters of the alphabet. An affirming and inclusive book that offers a joyful glimpse of a Pride parade and the vibrant community that celebrates this day each year.
About Robin, by Robin:
“I was born in England but moved to Canada as a when I was a kid. I read pretty much every children’s book in our small town library-some of them many times! Fortunately I grew up in a house full of books and soon moved on to the ones on my parents’ shelves. I still read everything: short stories, memoirs, kids books, YA novels, and adult fiction and non-fiction.
I studied philosophy and social work at university and for ten years, I worked as a counsellor and taught social work. These days I mostly just write, both fiction and non-fiction, for all ages (babies to adults!). I also teach creative writing courses, and I often visit schools and libraries to talk about books and writing. When I am not busy with writing or spending time with my family, I work with other people to sponsor refugees to come to Canada. You can read more about that– and find out how you can help– here.
My family moved around when I was a kid. I grew up in Ontario but also lived in England, Japan and Australia. I now live in Victoria with my partner Cheryl, our teenage son, and our wonderful spaniel, Tazza!”
