The Book     

Walter is a loveable French bulldog who will capture your heart.  He lives with his mommy in New York City.  He loves to sleep, eat and really, really loves his treats.  Does he like exercise? For-Snerrt... NO! 

He tries to be kind and good, he really does, but somehow things always seem to turn into a disaster.  Poor Walter will his kind heart finally be exposed through all the chaos? 

This hardcover gem harbours illustrations that are full of expression, activity and hilarity. Kids will fall more and more in love with Walter as each page is turned.  "Walter Does His Best": encourages kids to look for opportunities to be kind in their world, appeals to kids' enjoyment of animals, celebrates authors of colour, can be read aloud for story time (which groups will love) or read independently, introduces kids to New York City landmarks in a fun, colourful way and affirms that everyone makes mistakes! 

Walter invites kids into his adventures and learns a very valuable life lesson.  Shared kindness is important and should be distributed to others each and every day.  I love the book and highly recommend it.

Meet the Author

Eva Pilgrim is an ABC correspondent and co-host of Good Morning America: Weekend Edition. Eva is building her life and career on kindness. From a young age, Eva’s mom taught her that kind was the best thing she could be, and Eva still lives by that philosophy. Eva and her colleagues at Good Morning America have developed a #nicegirls movement, and she believes that it makes the newsroom a happier place and that it produces better work. She wants young people to know that kindness is a strength, and we all have an opportunity to make the world brighter, one action at a time.
