Jake’s Journey by Debbie Dunlap

Jake watches Carly go to school everyday.  He can't come.  It's boring at home.  Oh, look, we managed to get the door open enough to get out...

Dunlap & Dunlap Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to review this book (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

Jake is doing real good until he gets to a Y in the road.  Should he go left or right?  My favorite part is when a nurse finds him in the bushes and takes him in the hospital with her.  He gets to visit all the sick kids and they are all thrilled to have him there.  He knows when to be calm, when he can lick them, and when a hug is all that is needed.  

When Carly goes to look for him, she realizes the hospital would be a cool place and that's where she finds Jake.  She also learns about how, with very little effort, he was able to help those sick folk.  Best of all, she learns she could help, too.

Just stretch a bit and do something nice for someone; it will make the world a better place.
