Each story comes with a great lesson and the author has provided talking points for each story. After the completion of a chapter, a quick flip to the appendix will give parents a great place to start to discuss the story with their children. The stories are very entertaining and cute, and both parents and children will be entertained.
Seamus speaks in a `Seamus speak,' shortening words, and sometimes using completely different words. The dialect is a little strange to get used to. Children might get confused during a reading, but if you take the time to explain it to them, they will look forward to hearing how Seamus speaks.
Heartwarming and educational, The Adventures of Seamus the Sheltie is a great family read.
Armchair Interviews agrees.
This author does not flinch at difficult issues, such as prejudice and grief. Instead, Mr. Beverly captures the reader in such a way (through the art of story telling and the use of language) that he introduces these tough subjects by using Seamus's adventures as a soothing balm for the reader. I admire his courage, not only to address topics that most people find difficult, but I'm also in awe of the way he uses the animals to build an atmosphere of safety.
I bought this book for myself, as well as my daughter (who is a teenager), and we continue to use it, even though we have read the stories several times.
