"Everyone can be of service and everyone has something to share." -Yolanda King,daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King
"Charming yet real, Lisa Dunn-Dern's book manages to capture day-to-day life in a hospital." -Carol Bennet, MD
"At Childrens Hospital, the children are happiest when dogs come to visit." - Mary Hart
Dr Duncan Dog on Duty is a beautifully illustrated picture book which is a heartwarming expression of bond between human companions and children. "My job is to go to school, ask questions, try my best, and have a good time," says the little girl who tells this story. Everyone in the family has a job, and their dog Duncan's job is to be a therapy dog at the nearby children's hospital. This is a children's book that affirms the idea that everyone (even the family pet) can be of service and has something to share. Children will be introduced to the healing and comfort brought to people of all ages by therapy / assistance dogs.
Dr Duncan Dog on Duty is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn. The app is based on Lisa Dunn-Dern’s book by the same name, illustrated by Andrea Nicole Yomtob.
