If you can't watch the video, don't fret! I've put together the highlights just for you!

7-year-old Parker went to the library in search of something fun to read.


But when she flipped over the book, she was in for a surprise.



So Parker wrote a letter to the publisher.

A month later, they wrote her back!


And how does the new series make Parker feel?

Not only is Parker one impressive little girl, but she's on to something! Who says girls can't like bugs, pirates, monsters, or trucks? And on that same note, it's totally OK if a little boy doesn't want to read about "boy" things. Children's books shouldn't be exclusively for boys or exclusively for girls — they should be for everyone! Let's agree that kids should be who they are without their books and toys dictating what they should and shouldn't enjoy.

The third annual Calm the Canines event is sponsored by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control with founder Santiago in Arizona. They comfort animals during these worrisome times.
