Beverly Ann McCall (teacher, elementary school administrator, and author) presents a moving tale about her first dog, Bekah. In her debut book, Bekah’s First Adventure, we meet this adorable King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
This book takes the reader on a journey from Chandler, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada—a trek of 316 miles and many new experiences. These experiences vary from preparing for the journey, the journey itself, and meeting her new family. So many unknown factors cause Bekah’s brain to swim as she ponders such questions as: Will I like this thing called adoption? What about my new family, will they like me? Will I be brave enough? Will there be new places to explore and discover?
Beverly falls in love with Bekah on first sight and comes to understand Anatole France’s quote: “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one soul’s remains unawakened.”
Beverly uses Bekah’s viewpoint as she tackles the question of conquering the fear of the unknown upon encountering a new family and home. Read Bekah’s First Adventure to learn how Bekah adjusts to and overcomes the challenges facing her. This book is the perfect gift for the new dog owner or anyone thinking about getting a puppy.

What a delightful book!
What a delightful book! I purchased it for. My nine year old grandson. He is very interested in adopting a puppy. This book gives him the insight from the dog’s point of view. He like Bekah has just moved to a new home in Californiau and a new school. Bekah has shown him how to adapt to his new sorroundings.
The book kept him involved in the tale and the vocabulary was easy enough for him to read on his own. He also enjoyed sharing the story with his sister. I highly recommend Bekah’s First Adventure and we are looking forward to the next adventure.

Precious little gem this is. A great way to teach the little ones on the process of adopting a puppy. A great way to educate them, early on, about the joy and the responsibility of being a pet breeder as well as being a “pet parent.”
