Kits are ready for pickup today, Tuesday, August 1! Please remember that we have a limited number of kits available, so it's first come, first served. If you have any special requests or need accommodations, please let Leanna or Michelle know!
All we ask is that you read the book: do as much or as little of the rest of it as you want. No matter how much you do, the book is yours!
"Goldie" by Ellen Miles
“Charles and Lizzie Peterson love puppies. They want a puppy of their own more than just about anything. They know dogs are a lot of work. But their mom still doesn’t think their family is ready for a puppy. Then, Goldie arrives. She is a sweet golden retriever that needs a home. Goldie is very young. She doesn’t know how to be a good puppy yet. Will Charles and Lizzie be able to help her?"
*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
