Sterling, Best Dog Ever Reviews
A silver dog leaves a fork factory with a bunch of forks and does his best to be the best fork ever when he gets to his new home. Is he really meant to be a fork? Nice identity themes. Preschool and up
This is funny story with a lot of heart about a dog pretending to be a fork (and many other things) to find a home. Visually, it also depicts a mixed culture (appearing to be South Asian and white), interracial family. In the end, this story helps children learn an important message: just be yourself!

Sterling is the story of a dog who didn't know who he was supposed to be; a fork? a chandelier? a stick? All Sterling wants to do is find a forever home and figure out what he is supposed to do and be. He just wants to please and do exactly what he meant to do. But he doesn't know what that is. Thanks to a very patients and loving family, Sterling figures out just what he needs to be.

Funny book about a dog who is a little confused. Kids giggled while I read this. The art is great too.
Sterling has received a lot of rejection and needs a home and people to belong to. He wants love so much that he is willing to do anything or be anything to live with these new people want--even if that means being a fork. "Sterling," silverware, fork, get it? Sterling won't do anything he doesn't believe a fork would do, which is unfortunate since all this family wants is a dog! Sterling comes to understand that they will love him just the way he is if he is his true self.

This book is just too adorable. The illustrations are darling, and the story is so sweet. (I got so sad about halfway through, when the mom and dad were giving him The Look when he was just trying so hard (too hard) to be exactly what they wanted!)
I really enjoyed this story as well. I thought is was a cute story about a dog wanting and finding a home and about a family not always getting what they want but maybe what they need instead. Very nice writing and good illustrations as well.
A story about a dog, Sterling, who just wants a home and takes a circuitous route through a fork factory. Now that he has that home, having been delivered in a fork box, he'll do whatever it takes to keep it. The family takes in the dog and watches, bewildered, as Sterling behaves like a fork (because isn't that what they ordered?) Through the sweet, soft illustrations Cassie shows the hilarious attempts of the dog trying his best to be a fork and the family's wonder at why the dog doesn't behav ...more
