I LOVE VINCENT
Written and Illustrated by Laura Ljungkvist
In I Love Vincent, readers spend a fun-filled day with Scout, a seeing-eye dog, and his human, Vincent. Follow the pair across the city and home again through vibrant and stylish illustrations by acclaimed children's book author and illustrator, Laura Ljungkvist.
Scout is a very good boy. He is a seeing-eye dog who helps his human friend Vincent with all his daily activities because Vincent is blind.
After graduating from a special training school where they learned how to be partners, Scout and Vincent became a perfect team! Vincent takes excellent care of Scout, giving him his favorite kind of food and taking him to the park for endless rounds of fetch, and Scout takes care of Vincent by guiding him safely across busy streets, helping him find items that go missing, and making sure he avoids danger.
Young readers will be introduced to a true-to-life portrayal of the relationship between a blind person and their seeing-eye dog, informed by Ljungkvist's research with the American Foundation for the Blind, and first-hand accounts from the visually-impaired consultants she worked with in creating the book.
Scout loves Vincent and Vincent loves Scout. Follow them as they make their way through a typical day, ending with favorite records and snuggles on the couch.
