Astro wants a space puppy. But his parents don’t think he’s responsible enough.
Promising he’ll take care of the puppy, his mom takes him to the Space Shelter, where Astro finds the perfect puppy and names him Cosmo.
At first, Astro is excited and takes good care of Cosmo. Soon, though, Astro gets tired of all the puppy chores he must do. So instead of taking Cosmo for a walk, as his mom asked, Astro takes his puppy to Spiky Thorn Field with his friends.
Astro has so much fun chasing flying snog beetles that he ends up losing Cosmo!
Will Astro have the courage to tell his parents he lost Cosmo? Will Astro be able to find his puppy? Will Astro learn about being responsible?
“Astro and the New Puppy” touches on the difficulties kids face when caring for a family pet. It teaches how ownership, responsibility, and learning from mistakes promote personal growth, unlocking new ways of thinking and behaving.
