Please Don’t Tell Cooper He’s a Dog (Mom’s Choice Award Recipient —Gold) (Hardcover)


Mom’s Choice Award Recipient—Gold!

“This sweet, amusing story about a rescue dog and his doting family illustrates the trials and joys of pet ownership, while sending a clear message that the benefits of adopting a shelter or rescue dog far outweigh the challenges.”

-Rhodes & Easton Reviews, December 21, 2020

“… I can’t think of a better book to share with children who have canine companions in their family or will be visiting a shelter in the near future to adopt a new family member…. A grand selection for storytime, Please Don’t Tell Cooper He’s A Dog is also written at a level that will enable young readers to enjoy reading it on their own. It’s most highly recommended.”

They are important members of the family! Michelle Lander Feinberg’s hilarious, delightful dog adventure for children ages 2-8 and their families.
