About the book:

Moose, a lovable chocolate Lab with an enthusiasm for tennis balls, bones, and all things squirrel, is a chronic worrier. On his first day at doggie daycare, Moose feels butterflies in his belly when he thinks about the endless worries that Fret the Flea whispers into his floppy brown ear. What if Moose can’trun as fast as the other dogs? What if his parents forget to pick him up? A hero emerges in the form of Mighty Moose, the brave rival to meddlesome Fret. With Mighty Moose teaching him to change his thoughts, Moose returns to doggie daycare and learns to face his fears and run with the big dogs. Moose the Worry Mutt Goes to Doggie Daycare is a lighthearted picture book with both popular appeal and therapeutic benefits. Mental health professionals, parents, and teachers can useMoose’s experiences to model healthy strategies for managing anxiety, while bright illustrations andlovable characters make this a tale that kids are sure to enjoy time and time again.
