As an adult, I have shared this book with my husband, who is also entranced by it. For years he has wished to purchase it for his sister. I am hoping that Amazon.com can help us find it.
I love the story mentioned by the one other reader who has reviewed this book. I too have been moved by the Savage Dog. Just the title of A Horse for Weezie can move me to tears. The book is a treasure I hold dear. I thank my parents for letting me take it with me when I moved out on my own.
Authors range from the everyday citizen to famous authors like Jean Craighead George, James Thurber and Farley Mowat. There are excerpts from books like Rascal, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be and the First Lady of the Seeing Eye (about Seeing Eye dogs). Then there is my personal favorite, A Runt of a Horse which taught me the power of love. The runt of a horse that people laughed at for being so small, but who won all his races and when his owners had to sell him due to health reasons, he lost the will to win and eventually died of a broken heart.
To read the stories is like a stroll down memory lane. The Day I Met Midnight is written by Ulmont Healy, a cowboy turned cowboy actor during the silent film era. Doc Pete's Friend Charlie is set during a time when doctors carried their black medical bags and made house calls --driving to their patients' home with a horse and buggy. What a wonderful way to bring the past to life for kids. The Dog From No-Man's Land, a great story of loyal friendship and life during WWII and the old Soviet Bloc regime.
As a public school teacher, I will be reading some of these stories in my elementary class as a springboard for discussion and to teach them how to ask questions, to think deeper -- to see beyond what is in front of them.Read more ›
My boys, eight and 10, will flip through it and read a story here and there, but my six-year-old daughter loves it. So glad I found a copy!
