About the Author:

Maryann Cocca-Leffler has created over 50 books for children, including Princess K.I.M. and the Lie That Grew and Jack's Talent. She was inspired to write A Vacation for Pooch when her youngest child was preparing to go away to college. Maryann realized that at any age, separation from a loved one, whether human or pet, can be difficult. Still, even when miles separate us, love will always be the connection. Maryann lives in New Hampshire with her family.

Review:

“This will be a usefully light-hearted way to approach separation anxiety of all kinds, and the book's small size makes it perfect to tuck into a bag for reassuring worried young travelers who miss their own furry friends.” ―BCCB

“Pitch-perfect, well-paced and with a conclusion that will leave children deeply satisfied, this is a book to be shared before any kind of separation and just for fun.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“...emotionally observant...” ―Publishers Weekly

“The split-page format that appears on several of the spreads allows readers to see each character on vacation.” ―School Library Journal

“A cleverly conceived, charming little story for kids with beloved pooches of their own.” ―Booklist

“Warm illustrations of the enthusiastic students help make this a nice choice for those just starting school.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Jack's Talent

“Children will find piquant details in the pictures when they return to it later on their own.” ―The Horn Book on Jack's Talent

“An enjoyable read-aloud for classrooms and libraries.” ―School Library Journal on Mr. Tanen's Ties

“The colorful artwork, done in gouache, colored pencils, and collage, complements the story, giving the book a playful tone.” ―School Library Journal on My Backpack
