About the Book

Kevin has a beautiful new puppy! But what should he name her? He wants to find a name that is unique, just like her. Kevin knows the puppy is special, but he’s about to find out just how smart she is when she helps Kevin choose her own name!
My Review
Cute Children's Book for Dog Lovers.  Naming a new puppy (or any pet) is a big responsibility!  This cute children's book follows little Kevin as he searches for the perfect name for his new puppy.  Kevin considers "boring" names that make the puppy yawn to names that simply do not interest her.  It's a fun book for little dog lovers or children naming a puppy of their own.
Fun Illustrations Highlight the Puppy's Personality. As Kevin learns about his puppy--and lets her choose her name--readers will learn that, just like people, dogs have unique personalities and special characteristics too.   The fun, expressive illustrations give children extra smiles or giggles on every page. 
Would I Recommend Are you a Pineapple by Kathryn A. Zolman?   My family always has a house full of animals--from geckos and turtles to dogs, cats and chinchillas.  Most of the time, a name seems to fit immediately.  Sometimes--it is much harder to find that perfect name.  This is a fun book to remind families and little readers that each pet is special and unique.  I would definitely recommend it to dog loving readers and caregivers!

 Meet the Author

Kathryn A. Zolman never expected to write a children’s book, but when Pineapple came into her life and she heard the story of how this sweet, smart dog got her name, she thought it would make a fun book for parents to read to their children. Pineapple is a Bull Mastiff, German Shepherd, Chow mix, and much like a real pineapple, she knows how to stand tall and is very sweet on the inside!

Kathryn is an avid dog lover. Along with her husband and daughter, they have raised three Doberman Pinschers, each with their own unique personality and character. Kathryn is an advocate for not only raising children to respect all animals, but also to be thankful for the pure joy that they bring to our lives. In writing this book, Kathryn seeks to spread a positive message and hopes it will help children express more gratitude in their lives.
