A new puppy, Caspar, has arrived in Cleo’s home, and Cleo is not happy about it. Toddlers will relate to Cleo’s initial refusal to share space and attention, as well as her eventual realization that there’s enough love for everyone.

Key Selling Points:

  • EARLY LITERACY: Simple vocabulary and rhyming text promote early literacy skills.
  • SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING: Cleo and Caspar’s budding friendship can educate children about new friends, new siblings, and the range of emotions that come with meeting new people. Toddlers will especially relate to the full spread in which a frustrated Cleo shouts, “No!”
  • SERIES: The books in the Cleo series, featuring bright, engaging illustrations by artist Caroline Mockford, are perfect for reading as a set but can also stand alone.
  • AUDIO NARRATION: Includes link to online audio animation by acclaimed storyteller Xanthe Gresham Knight.
