Caring For My New Best Friend: A Puppy! is the book that started the Books 4 Kids Program in the spring of 2014. The book is an early reader's guide to caring for a new puppy, with an underlying message of empathy toward animals. The book's impact became far more reaching when the authors noticed children becoming kinder to each other through the course of one reading. That's when Coleen realized the impact one book can have on a child's life, and when she envisioned the Books 4 Kids Program.
