  1. Readers’ Favorite

    C.M. Harris’s picture book story, Gareth Gets a Job, is a sweet and endearing story about Gareth’s purpose. This true story about a service dog is tender, compassionate, and at times a little funny as Gareth tries multiple different possible jobs in his search to find what he can do best. Told in the first-person from Gareth’s point of view, the plot follows Gareth’s adventures as he’s introduced to different job opportunities for dogs. Not only does Gareth learn about the different types of service dog opportunities, but he also shares his experiences and his enthusiasm for young readers to learn as well and he does it in such a way that he’ll have young readers chuckling along with his antics and cheering him along, especially when he finds the right job for him. One particular point that Gareth displays in all his attempts at the various jobs is that all dogs, even working service dogs, have fun, too. Gareth really enjoys what he does and what he learns to do. At the end of the book, there is a short biography of Gareth, complete with a few photographs of Gareth with his owner (the author). This adds a personal touch to the story. There is also a list of important service dog jobs. This story speaks to the heart. Beautifully told and I love the illustrations.”
