Description - Can I Sit with You? by Sarah Jacoby

Guess How Much I Love You meets The Stray Dog in this empathy read that illustrates the power of friendship in the face of change.

With accessible, poignant text and stunning illustrations, beloved author/illustrator Sarah Jacoby tells the story of a friendship between a girl and a dog who discover how life transforms and expands with someone by your side. Warm, lyrical narration, outstanding imagery, and a pleasing rhythm take readers along one loyal dog's journey to the chair-and lap-of the girl he's meant to be with, no matter how far she roams. Whether you're reading with a loved one or on your own, this book illustrates the importance of companionship and loyalty, and how engaging with others makes the world embrace you in return.

* THE PERFECT EMPATHY READ: This is a book that can be read from two perspectives, with lots of room for questions between parent and child. In a time when divisiveness and polarization are everywhere, this book's message of openness and friendship is a refreshing change for both parents and kids.
* FOR DOG LOVERS: No matter your age, it's hard to deny the appeal of a furry friend. Like Gaston, Good Dog Carl, Harry the Dirty Dog, and Clifford, this book is a perfect portrayal of hope and everlasting love between a dog and "his" child.
* UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL: Evoking a European style that's playful, colorful, and incredibly emotive, Sarah's illustrations make for a picture book that stands out from the crowd. You'll want every single image as a painting for your child's nursery-or your own living room. At once playful and beautiful, child-like and stunning, Sarah's art takes children's book art to its highest high.

Perfect for:

* Parents and young kids
* ibrarians and educators
* Read-aloud circles
* Animal lovers
* Families with pets
* Fans of Sarah Jacoby
