What can the puppy do to help? He can't crow like the rooster, he's too small to pull like the ox, and he can't give his fur as the sheep give wool.

Playful text, with rhymes that punctuate each one of the puppy's encounters, and exuberant illustrations by Emily Arnold McCully follow a puppy as he finds the job that no other animal on the farm can do: give love to his boy.

Emily Arnold McCully received the Caldecott Medal for Mirette on the High Wire. The illustrator of more than 40 books for young readers, she has a lifelong interest in history and feminist issues. She divides her time between Chatham, New York, and New York City.
