Do you have a child that has trouble talking to people? Or expressing their feelings?
Ginormous Joe's Annoying Friend is a story about dogs with the problem of communicating their feelings, and how they solve it together. The Tuttles enjoy walking their dog, Ginormous Joe. But one day, they bring home a new friend, another dog named Mo. Joe and Mo don't seem to hit it off. She is always ignoring him and not wanting to play.
One day, Joe realizes that all he needed to do was reach out and talk. This gave Mo a chance to tell him why she never would play with him. She was shy. The awkwardness between them evaporates, and they become friends, all from finally being brave enough to tell each other their feelings.
This is a great book to show children how to communicate to solve their problems and work through their feelings.
