ABOUT THE BOOKS
A delightful adventure with a message for kids about how to
live better, more emotionally cognizant lives.
-Midwest Book Review
Educators and parents of children who are past the elementary picture book level and into reading chapter books and longer readers will appreciate the blend of easy language, big print, and illustrations that nudge readers from picture books to longer forms.Parents will also appreciate this story’s focus on courage, flexibility, and facing life changes with hope and creativity as Lindie Lou imparts some basic insights into dealing with life through her adventurous perspective.
Her enthusiasm about the wider world, her ability to communicate with humans and fellow animals alike, and her involvement with Kris, who brings her a wonderful gift, creates many unexpected moments that lend to parent and child discussion, especially recommended for adults seeking materials that contain bigger-picture thinking rather than entertainment value alone.
The result is a winning story about a wise puppy who takes the world’s challenges and runs with them. It’s a delightful adventure with more than a light dose of messages for kids about how to live better, more emotionally cognizant lives.
