The story provides a springboard for children to write about their own experiences with their pets, family and friends.

Format: Hardcover
"Sabu & Me" is a book written by a seven year old girl to benefit the PAWS organization of Chicago which is a No Kill humane organization for animals. The story tells of the relationship between Maura and her dog Sabu, who was rescued by Maura's mother as a puppy before Maura was born. Sabu accompanies Maura on daily life adventures from babyhood to young childhood and school attendance. Sabu is a loyal friend and companion to Maura throughout her days. The delicate illustrations illuminate the text beautifully. "Sabu & Me" is an excellent choice for children age 2 and up, for veterinarian offices, and for children who are adopting a pet. The clear message of compassion and kindness returned a thousandfold is indelible.

Sabu & Me is a wonderful story for young children (ages 2-6 years) who love animals--and what children don't love animals at this age? I bought this book for my four-year-old daughter, herself an avid dog-lover. Not only did she enjoy the tender interactions of Maura and her dog, Sabu, but she loved the vivid and colorful illustrations that truly brought the narrative to life. Our family has been planning to get a dog for some time, and my daughter is convinced that we'll be able to find a dog as wonderful as Sabu at a local animal shelter. Socially conscious and age-appropriate, I have recommended Sabu & Me to other parents; it's a sweet story that all parents and children will enjoy together.

Format: Hardcover
"Sabu and Me", based on a true story of a little girl's experiences with her pet dog is most appropriate for primary age students. The patterned and repetitive text and simple story line makes the beginning reader want to become engaged in reading this book over and over. In reading the book, the child enhances not only his or her reading skills but writing skills as well. The story provides a springboard for children to write about their own experiences with their pets, family and friends. I believe that this well illustrated piece of literature will hold a special place in the beginning reader's library. For the holidays and beyond, this will be a worthwhile purchase.

I was attracted to this book by the title and the compelling picture on the cover. When I gave the book to my grandchildren they absolutely loved the story, and it has become a permanent addition on their book shelf. The illustrations are vivid and colorful and truly bring to life the inspiring words of the author. "Sabu and Me" teaches children the values associated with caring for and loving a pet. In addition, Sabu's loyalty to Maura is well documented in words and illustrations throughout the story. With the holiday season approaching, this would be a perfect gift to make a child happy. Maura is to be commended for an outstanding job. It is a pet lover's delight.

More About the Author

Seven-year-old student Maura Lane, published her first book (for children ages 2-6) , SABU & ME. SABU & ME is the story of Maura and her dog Sabu and the wonderful times they spent together during Maura's early life. Written by Maura herself, the book is a re-telling of her earliest memories with her best friend. Since Sabu was a rescue dog Maura thought it was a good idea to donate profits from her book to PAWS Chicago.

Maura's words are complemented by the wonderful illustrations of Hazel Mitchell. Through a rainbow of colors, her illustrations bring the story of SABU & ME to life. Mitchell works from her studio in Maine, and has illustrated many children's books as well as commercial illustrations and painting. Originally from Yorkshire, UK, she has clients worldwide and her art has been received by the British Royal Family. Most days her four dogs and one cat oversee her work schedule.
