This book is dedicated to Mac, our furry family member – every day, we miss you and love you always. Mac rescued our family. Everyone who met Mac fell in love with him. He was gentle and full of spunk. When we first met him at the shelter he had been returned many times and was healing from a recent surgery. Mac was a sweetheart and our best friend. We hope by sharing this story, he will live on in your hearts as he does in ours.
Mac and Grace are featured in the book cuddling - the way you would always find them together!

When you see a word bolded in our books, that means it may be a challenging word or, as we like to think, mind candy! No cavities come with this sugar. This is meant to encourage young readers to share what they believe the word means in context to the story while also prompting them to discover the correct definition. They may even find some of their own challenge words along the way!
We believe children are naturally intelligent and curious! Our books are crafted with diverse topics in mind, offering an opportunity for young readers to learn while telling a high-quality story. Stories with characters who teach lessons, have depth and expand their vocabulary for their growing minds. Smart cookie questions are at the end of all our books to promote comprehension and retention.
The official cover of Mac's new book!
Here is the real Mac in 2018 jumping up in the air because he misses his Mama who was in the basement. He can't wait to see her! His brother Eldon is nearby to make sure he is okay.
This little guy is the cutest. Mac put everything into his barks. His brother Eldon was always at his side. Whenever they heard the word "love" they would give each other a little kiss.
We are expecting multiple litters of Mac plushies to be born in 2023 along with the Grace plushie who is loving Mac throughout the book. Warning: Cuteness overload!
