"...However, Buddy did not only want a home; he wanted a boy. A boy he could run and play with outside. A boy he could cuddle at night as they drifted off to sleep. A boy he could love each and every day of his life."
Children will find it a fun and exciting book to read. Parents will be able to use it as a tool to teach tolerance and the fact that what we look like is not what makes us a good friend.
You have always heard about the little dog that follows the little boy or girl home and the plea of "Can I keep him?" Buddy follows a different person home who makes the plea for him. You must read the book to find out who this mysterious person is.
Buddy Finds a Home is the 2011 NTBF Award Winner for children's books, presented at the North Texas Book Festival on April 16, 2011 at the Center for the Visual Arts in Denton, Texas.
This is a great book that I really enjoyed. There is lots of description throughout the book and since it's written from the puppy's perspective, it's easy to feel connected and attached to Buddy and to really hope with him and feel sadness with him. This book is excellent to read to young children and would be about right for a 2nd or 3rd grader to read on their own. I enjoyed the heartfelt journey and the illustrations just bring the book to life. I highly recommend this book.
Thanks Rachel for sharing your story with me!
Buddy wonders why no one choses him...is he too rambunctious? Too odd looking? Too small? Surely there is a family out there that wants him. Buddy just wants a loving family with a little boy that he can call his own.
Follow along with Buddy as he goes through his adventure of finding his family. You will come to adore Buddy...
This would be a perfect gift for any young child, especially one that loves puppies. This would also make an ideal gift for a pre-school or kindergarten class.
