Gus Gets a Human by Payden Annie Hall

I really enjoyed reading this book about Gus, a lonely Bernese Mountain dog who wonders if he will ever be loved and accepted by a human. I imagine that many humans can relate to the experience of loneliness and wondering if they will ever be truly loved and accepted. 

Even as an adult, this book touched my heart, and I was so happy when Gus finds his human, who can relate to his unique differences. The illustrations are cute and full of positive emotions. 

When reading this book to a child, parents and caregivers could point out similarities between Gus’ long tongue and anything that makes their child unique. If you enjoyed Audrey Bunny by Angie Smith or Corduroy by Don Freeman, this book would be a great addition to your child or student’s library.
