Just in time for your Christmas shopping, here is a newly released book from Neta Jackson (author of the Yada Yada Prayer Group novels and coauthor of the Trailblazer Books) bound to delight children from 4 to 7.

A menagerie of furry, feathered, and fuzzy animal buddies romp through the Pet Parables and discover that it's fun to get along! Their antics and adventures take them over bumps on the road to friendship as they learn how to tell the truth, cooperate, share, speak kindly, and respect one another.

Each story concludes with a special page of interactive questions for parents and teachers to use to reinforce the friendship lesson in each story.

In “The Cat Who Smelled Like Cabbage,” purebred Siamese Cat looks down her perfect nose at Alley Cat … and so does Black Cat, until she discovers that Alley Cat
is a true friend.

In “The Duck Who Quacked Bubbles,” Grumble learns that no one likes being around a duckling who complains all the time.
