There is nothing better than reading an awesome picture book to a child. Here are some of my favorites:
Caps for Sale, Esphyr Slobodkina
Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Mo Willems
The Little Engine that Could, Watty Piper
Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak
Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Suess
And of course
What makes Maggie awesome? Here's what some people are saying—
Jen Isbell, Pet Friends Magazine
I reviewed this book for my website and I really loved it! It teaches kids what's really important in life - and that quite often comes in the package of four furry paws!
Elizabeth Tipping, book reviewer
I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.
Doris Settles, writing instructor and editor
Would have been 5* if there had been a bit of foreshadowing as she cuddles up with her pup. As a rescue dog enthusiast, this is a wonderful book to teach children about special needs dogs and caring for the rest of the world. Teaches how fancy, expensive, weird experiences aren't the only ones that matter. Caring for a hurt dog and having family time with grandparents is just as important...and perhaps more so! Illustrations are lovely...very ethereal and imaginative, especially the teacher's red shoes! Excellent job and highly recommend.
Anjali Amit, book reviewer
Very successfully the author weaves a story of love and caring, of giving up and receiving. Maggie’s family chooses to forgo the vacation to rescue a dog lying by the roadside. Every choice has a consequence. So much to learn from such a simple story. Young 4-8 years old will enjoy the tale, their parents will talk of problem-solving, compassion, care for animals.
