From the beloved #1 New York Times best-selling children's author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and If You Give... series.

Meet Max, a lovable and determined puppy with a lot to learn on his adventure of becoming someone's life-changing friend and helper. Max's puppy raiser, Sam, takes him everywhere; on the bus, to puppy kindergarten, and even to restaurants. But it's tough staying underneath the table when the french fries smell so good!

Discover all the fun and important ways Max earns his special yellow vest as he and Sam work together to help someone in need of a true hero. "A good message excellently illustrated." (Picture book. 4-8) - Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Numeroff gives children a good introduction to the concept of service dogs, explaining why these animals are necessary and the kinds of help they provide. By focusing on a puppy who s still learning but has goals, kids can identify with Max and the pride involved in mastering skills." (Picture book. 4-8) --Kirkus Reviews

"Numeroff and Munsinger knocked it out of the park with Raising a Hero! This beautiful children's book teaches about the love, dedication and hard work that go into raising a service dog to help people with disabilities achieve independence. Proceeds from this book are going to one of my favorite organizations, Canine Companions for Independence, where the memory of our son Tommy Lasorda, Jr. lives on in a future service dog hero named 'Spunky.'" --Tommy Lasorda, Sr.
