Maple loved being the Parker family dog.
Why I recommend this book:
Maple the husky is the adorable and beloved family dog. But she looks a lot like a wolf. So much so that people are always mistaking her for a wolf. And…she can do lots of things that wolves do. Is it possible that she IS a wolf? When Maple questions her identity and place in the family, she takes off for the place wolves belong — the wild!
But the wild is a tough and lonely place for Maple. She misses her pack! Can she make it home before dark? This beautifully illustrated picture book is a heartwarming story about identity and belonging. Highly recommended!

Thanks for stopping by, Patricia!
As an introvert, my son often feels like a lone wolf. I keep telling him that there are other kids out there who can relate to his sensibilities. I hope that as he navigates to adulthood, he’ll find his pack.
Thanks for stopping by, Jilanne. As something of an introvert myself, I can relate to how your son is feeling. I hope he’ll find his pack, too!
