Before You Were Mine

Before You Were Mine by Maribeth Boelts  – Designed for children age 4 -10.

In Before You Were Mine, a boy wonders and questions what his dog’s life was like before he found his new forever home. Was the dog well taken care of, do his old owners miss him, did he get lost or was he given up? This charmingly illustrated book gently teaches children how a pet should be cared for and shows the good that can be done by rescuing a pet.
