Foster care : one dog's story of change / by Julia Cook ; illustrations by Marcela Calderón.

Cook, Julia, 1964- (author.). Calderón, Marcela, (illustrator.).


"In this heartfelt story from the bestselling author of My Mouth is a Volcano!, Foster meets new friends and a kind foster mom who help him navigate the fears and feelings associated with going into foster care. Foster has lived with his mom and "sometimes dad" all of his life ... until now. And like so many others entering foster care, he has more questions than answers and so many new feelings to deal with. Written in an honest, approachable way, Foster Care will encourage children entering or already in foster care and help them understand they are not alone. Foster, Daisy, Zeke, Simpson, and Rex all have different circumstances which brought them to foster care. Together they talk through their stories and realize this is right where they need to be for now; under the caring watch of foster mom, Miss Beulah"
