Cuando la perrita Pepita y la bebé, Bebita, se conocen, necesitarán algo de tiempo y mucho amor para convertirse en las mejores amigas.

When dog meets baby, it will take a little time and a lot of love for Pepita and Bebita to become the best of friends.

Darle la bienvenida a un nuevo bebé puede ser difícil, ¡especialmente cuando estás acostumbrado a ser el centro de atención! Cuando Pepita, la cachorra de la familia, conoce a la nueva bebita, se lleva algunas sorpresas. ¿Qué significa que ahora Mami esté demasiado ocupada para lanzarle una pelota a Pepita? ¿Y Papi en serio no encuentra tiempo para rascarle las orejas? Esta nueva bebita es un problema...

Pero sobre la marcha, las dos llegarán a quererse y a convertirse en una familia con muchas más sonrisas y momentos conmovedores. De la galardonada escritora Ruth Behar y su hijo, Gabriel Frye-Behar, llega una historia real sobre cómo adaptarse a la llegada de nuevos miembros y cómo aceptar el cambio.

Welcoming a new baby can be hard, especially when you’re used to being the center of attention! When it’s time for Pepita, the puppy of the family, to meet the brand new bebita, she’s in for a few surprises. What do you mean that Mami is too busy to bounce a ball for Pepita? And Papi seriously can't find any time to scratch her ears? This new bebita is a bit of a problem...

But along the way, the two will grow to love one another and become a family with even more smiles and heartwarming moments. From award winning author Ruth Behar and her son, Gabriel Frye-Behar comes a true-to-life story about adjusting to new additions and embracing change.
