A Vacation for Pooch by Maryanne Cocca-Leffler

Ages 4+

After Violet packs her bags for vacation in sunny, beautiful, warm Florida, she prepares a bag for her dog, Pooch. He can't go on vacation to Florida with her -- no dogs allowed -- so he is going to Grandpa's farm to play in the snow.  Nothing could possibly go wrong -- except that Violet accidentally takes Pooch's bag with her!

Worried that Pooch's vacation is ruined without his Fluffy Cat, his favorite red ball, and his food, Violet frantically calls Grandpa.  Will everything be okay? 

This would be a great read for a beginning reader looking for something a little bit more complex than books from our JP collection.
