Author: Kathy Vassilakis
Genre: Children’s Book
The idea to write this book came from my daughter and my dog. This book was written to show children how special a bond and friendship they can have with their dog. Dog’s are wonderful pets and love us unconditionally. They will protect and love us no matter what. Children deserve to learn that at a very young age and grow to love all animals. Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character.
Reviewing picture books is tough because there’s not much one can say except that it was an enjoyable, cute book, the illustrations looked lovely, the story was heartwarming, and the writing was on an appropriate level for younger children. Overall, if I had to give one suggestion, the pink background classified the book easily as a “girl’s book”, although the story itself could be enjoyable for both boys and girls. I’d suggest going for more neutral colors on the cover (for example, green) so parents of boys will pick up the book as well.
