Big Dog wants to be friends. “But what is a friend?” asks Little Dog. Readers will learn the answer in this funny, heartwarming story. This easy-level book is perfect for new readers.
Friends have fun, Big Dog explains. They could take a train to the zoo, a bus to the boats, or a rocket to the moon. But before the friends can execute their plans, it starts to snow. The dogs go to their homes where Big Dog takes a bath, and Little Dog puts on his boots and goes outside.
But Little Dog falls and is buried in snow. Will Big Dog hear Little Dog’s plaintive “woofs” and come to the rescue? Yes! Because friends help friends. And friends don’t have to go to the moon to have fun. They can just hang out and enjoy ice cream together.
