Puppy Love 

click to enlarge kidsbeat2-1.jpg

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based elementary school teacher Nicole Brierre revisited her Rutland childhood to write her first children's book, Chanterelle Finds a Family. Chanterelle, a carefree puppy, lives in the wilderness with his animal pals. Sometimes, though, he dreams of life as a cherished pet. When a human family hikes through his neck of the woods, Chanterelle follows them home. Brierre's family dog inspired the story for kids ages 5 to 7; her brother, Ben Brierre, and his girlfriend, Sidney Hoang, created the illustrations. Kids will connect with the cuddly dog's desire for independence and security. Brierre hints that she has fodder for more books because the real Chanterelle, who was also discovered in the woods, gets into "lots of mischievous situations."

'Chanterelle Finds a Family': Available on Amazon for $11.69, paperback.
