This book is one of the very sweetest I have read with a message that I think we could all use from time to time. Poor Plummie tries so hard to be good but somehow things always seem to go wrong. Impulsive and rash mistakes lead Plummie to wonder if her owner still loves her. Her worries are eased when she realizes her owner, of course, loves her always!This is why love is her favorite thing. Having an exuberant little guy at home myself, this has become a regular read for us. Valentines Day, or any day really, is a good time to remind those in our life that they are always loved no matter what!
Starring an enthusiastic pooch whose joy, optimism and love know no bounds, this lively picture book is based on Emma Chichester Clark's own dog, and joyfully celebrates unconditional love. Plum has lots of favorite things--catching sticks, her bear, her bed--but really, LOVE is her absolute favorite thing. She loves her family and all the things they do together. Sometimes, however, Plum's exuberance causes trouble, and she just can't help being naughty. But fortunately, love is such a great thing that even when she makes mistakes, Plum's family still adores her.
