Editorial Reviews


Christi Dunlap has added a valuable volume to that large bookshelf of books for kids (and their parents) about pets. With lovely photos and a sweet but smart text, she s created something of A Kid s Guide to Living with Pets in an engaging format. Whether adding a new companion animal is in your child s near future, your family already includes some four-legged members, or you are simply interested in helping a young person be safe and feel comfortable around the animals they meet, Christi Dunlap s Lucky Me is a winner. --Ken White, President, Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA

Lucky Me is an important resource for elementary educators teaching compassion and responsibility skills to students or for those with children who are considering adding an animal to their family. Told in the voice of the adorable dog Rocky, this book teaches kids how to identify and react to animal feelings, what a pet needs to be a safe, happy part of a human family and the role of the humane society in helping animals find safe homes. It even has a pledge page so a child can formally agree to give food, water, shelter and love to their new animal friend! The crisp photos beautifully illustrate the book s points and lovingly draw children into the world of joy that animals can bring to our families and lives. --Liliana Manzone, Elementary Educator and Learning Specialist

Christi has an uncanny sense of connection with both children and animals and it makes this book sing. Her words and photographs speak of the intimate journey from being lost to being found - a timeless message that resonates with readers of every age as well as sheds light on the beautiful spirits of the dedicated people who rescue and place animals. Christi s heart and vision is visible on every page; a gift to us all. --Kristin Armstrong, mother of three children and six pets, author, speaker, freelance writer, and contributing editor for Runner s World magazine.

Format: Perfect Paperback
I come from a family of teachers and I'm very glad to run across this book called "Lucky Me" by Christi Drue Dunlap. This is a easily understood book that tells the basics of animal care for children. The pictures of actual dogs and are charming. The text is short and sweet, so an upper-level reader could very easily read it on their own. The great lessons are:

1) How to approach a dog (closed fist and pet the back).
2) How to keep a dog safe (collar and a tag with the owner's phone number).
3) Animal signals using pictures - unhappy, happy, growly, etc.
4) How to take care of your best friend - fresh water! Food! Love! Attention!

Thoroughly enjoyable book!

My son is obsessed with this book. He thinks the pictures are hilarious, and now he calls every pug "Rocky". He has learned how to approach new dogs safely, and loves to point out when our dog needs fresh water or food.
Such a great buy...totally worth it- not boring (as most educational books are), great pictures, not too wordy.
