He weighs just three pounds, but he has done a ton of good.

Norbert the therapy dog is a rescue pup that has dedicated his life to bringing smiles to those who need it most, and he has earned millions of fans along the way.

But this tiny dog is no diva; he knows everyone and anyone can be a hero just like him. To help the world find its inner Norbert, he has put together a book full of life lessons and do-gooder tips.

PEOPLE has the exclusive look at the cover of Norbert’s first effort as an author. Norbert’s Little Lessons For a Big Life is filled with everything he has learned about family, friends, love and more through his years of charity work as a therapy dog — and, of course, there are oodles of pictures.
