A Dog's Guide to Being Human

By Shanna Silva

Illustrated by Agnes Arnoult

A hilarious and heartwarming picture book sharing a dog's hard-earned wisdom about living a happy life.
My humans have brought home a tiny baby. It is up to me to teach her how to fit in!
Smudge has a new family member: a baby girl. And he has a LOT to teach her about fitting in with the humans. Like don't drink from the toilet (the humans don't like it). But DO share your snacks (especially with Smudge). And make as many friends as you can--yes, even the occasional cat. There's so much to go through, but as Smudge knows, it's every good dog's job to welcome home their family.

Hi, I'm Drake! My mom has a book called A Dog's Guide to Being Human. I think it's about me! Woof!
