2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
Zara is in a wheelchair but this is only noted in the illustrations. Her energetic dog Moose hates goodbyes and keeps creating hellos by showing up at school in the classroom, the library, the cafeteria. What to do, Zara sends Moose to therapy school and we see him where he should be at the end of the book, the class reading dog. The language is active, "goodbye is hide without seek, an itch that can't be scratched" and the illustrations capture the moods of dog and children. A subtle story that might create interest in therapy dogs. Edie Ching (up to 7)
