Claire’s Coyote Friends

Written by Christy Burbidge
Illustrated by Mary Jo Helchowski

Claire lives in a house on a golf course with her dad and rescue beagle, Buddy. Every day after school, Claire and Buddy go for a walk on the course—it’s Claire’s favorite part of the day!

The golf course is home to many animal friends: geese, swans, and…

Claire hears barking…what is that, puppies?!

Upon learning the babies are actually coyote pups, Claire becomes enamored and researches their needs and how they differ from Buddy’s. Claire’s Coyote Friends is an exploration of and helps children understand a different type of bond—one where we can feel close to others even if we can’t spend time with them.
