Before You Were Mine has been added to your Cart. An unnamed boy whose family takes in this sweet-looking pet describes what the animal's life might have been like "before you were mine until you find hi. The boy also imagines how tough life must have been when the animal was on his own, and how frightened he might.
Before you were mine. wonders a little boy, "id you live in a warm house with warm smells and a rug that was only yours? you kept on a chain, with a dusty bowl and lonely sounds all around?" Never varying from this direct address, the little boy speculates about the life his dog may have led before being adopted from the shelter. Boelts's restrained text and Walker's affecting illustrations combine to pack a small wallop directly to the hearts of dog-loving children who will almost certainly give their pets an extra hug afterwards. A note on adopting a shelter pet follows this unabashedly emotional offering.
