Salsa is new to the neighborhood and meets Chips. They spend time playing in the dog park near their homes. They come across dogs that can be new friends, and other dogs that are not so nice. One day Salsa comes across a dog in trouble, but it’s one that was not nice in the past. What does Salso do?

I liked this story. It’s easy for kids to connect to the characters and the lessons in the story are easy to understand. Both of my children enjoyed this book, and it’s already been read multiple times now!

The illustrations are fun. They are cartoonish, but still realistic. The kids enjoyed looking at them!

Overall, I thought this was a good story. The characters are fun, and the story is great!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Adventures of Chips & Salsa to children in preschool through middle-elementary. It’s a great book for a child that is moving to a new place, or trying to make new friends, but really, it’s perfect for any child!
