Rudy’s New Human

RudyRudy’s New Human is a wonderful book written by Roxanna Elden and Illustrated by Ginger Seehafer. Rudy has a pretty sweet life. He gets all the attention, he gets all the lovin’, he gets all the cuddlin’, it’s safe to say Rudy is on top of the world. Until, that is a HUMAN child arrives.

4-year-old Alice loves this book for several reasons.  The story is super cute. Rudy the dog didn’t know what to expect with the new human, but, he didn’t expect his entire life to be turned upside down!!

The new human get’s all the attention. The new human get’s all the lovin’ and cuddlin’. All in all Rudy is feeling neglected.  As the human grows Rudy begins to find his place in the family.

Like I said, Alice loves this book but, being 4, her two absolute favorite parts have to do with poop. Seriously, what is it about farts and poop that make kids laugh hysterically??? So, I told Alice that she could share with you her favorite pages of Rudy’s New Human and of course she picked the poop part.

Rudy’s New Human is a super sweet, funny story that would be an awesome way to introduce a new human to the family.

Life was good for Rudy the dog—until the new baby arrived . . .

Rudy loves being top dog in his family of three. When Rudy’s human parents tell him that they are having a baby, Rudy thinks the newest member of the family will be interested in the same games he likes—chewing bones, chasing cats, and playing fetch. But Rudy’s new human is not what he expected! The baby cuts into Rudy’s naptime, gets him in trouble, and, worst of all, steals the spotlight! Will Rudy ever find his place again in his family now that he’s sharing it with the new human?

Rudy’s New Human is a sweet and humorous story that helps older siblings to learn to share parents’ attention—and maybe even become friends with a new family member.
