Book Description

Chester won’t mince woofs. From his point of view, he counts on his happy home where he can dig and run and swim.

Just about the time Chester’s got life by the paws, a huge dog arrives as well as a small kitten.

Heavens to pets! Life just isn’t the same any more. But he makes the most of it to become a special therapy dog.


Editorial Reviews

Review


"Young children will find it easy to relate to Chester the Chesapeake as he learns to share, listen, follow the rules, and ultimately, be of service to his larger community."
Chester is a winner!    Patricia Lynch, Elementary School Teacher, NY

  
"Chester is a great storyteller!"  
Marcia Donovan, Putnam Library Storyteller, Cookeville, TN


"This is an excellent book to help children to understand the loving bond that is created when a dog enters one's life. The realistic pictures and real life situations make learning more relatable for children."  
Dawn Murphy, Early Education Teacher, Smithville, TN

About the Author

*****

A physician, speaker, and former chemist, Barbara Ebel's writing draws heavily from her experience as an anesthesiologist, her dealings with family court, and her interactions with people and places from around the world.

Since Ebel writes credible medicine into the background of her novels and her O.R. scenes shine, it's no wonder the first in her Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, Operation Neurosurgeon, was the top finalist for best selling medical mystery books in 2012. (Best Selling Books' blog announced on PR Buzz Press Release Wire, Chicago, IL).  The ranking derives its roster of bestsellers from sources such as Amazon and Goodreads and uses readers' ratings, reviews and title sales for a blended score that creates each book's final rank.

In addition to her adult writing, she has illustrated and penned a children's book series called Chester the Chesapeake. The books developed after her philanthropic visits with her therapy dog, Chester. The dog continues to inspire adults and children alike. After publishing each Chester book, the question then is always, "when's the next one?"

Along with her husband and four pets, "Doctor Barbara" lives in a wildlife corridor in middle Tennessee. Her book, Silent Fear, the second of the Dr. Danny Tilson novels, was published in March of 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching compassion and kindness February 19, 2009
By H. Foss
Format:Paperback
My three year old daughter loves this book! As she has a dog of her own, she can really relate to the story about learning, compassion and kindness. She brought the book to her preschool one day to share with her class - it was a huge hit as kids can relate to animals so well. I love the personal touch given to the book by the author Barbara Ebel. It is lovely all around and would be a welcome addition to any child's book collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cindy January 22, 2010
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this book to my grandkids. The pictures are cute and the comments are quite wry. Using photographs makes this story more "real" for children, and the gentle lessons put forth are a great inspiration for discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, Adorable, and teaches life's lessons! October 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chester the Chesapeake was a cute and adorable story! The author utilizes the prospective of her dog Chester to teach children and adults life's valuable of following directions, learning to grow and continue learning, that sharing and making new friends is fun and well worth the effort and that by learning and growing you can prosper and grow to help others and yourself. Chester is a great role model and I can't wait to see what other lessons can be learned from him! I highly recommend this book and series to anyone!
