Need a gift idea for the young dog lovers in your life?
At the Dog Park with Sam and Lucy and Buddy Unchained are two great new books perfect for those upcoming pesky holidays. The Illustrations are fantastic and the child will love empathizing with the characters. Even if they have no idea that's what they're doing.
In At the Dog Park, Sam and Lucy have a great time meeting new friends at the, um, dog park (kinda got that from the title, eh?) and the last page is for the adults in the family. A whole page on how you can start a dog park in your town. As a person who has been trying for years to start one in mine I thought that was really cool.
In Buddy Unchained, Buddy the dog, now happy in a new home, tells of his former life spent chained up outside. It's a bit of a tearjerker, if you ask me, so when you read this with your kids be ready to answer some tough questions.
I'm looking forward to giving these books to my nephews for Christmas and to my daughter as well. Something tells me I'll enjoy reading them as much as they will.
Both books are available at Amazon and are one sale for $10.85 each.
