Editorial Reviews

Review

"This mother and daughter, author and artist, have lovingly created a wonderful kid's book highlighting what all families should think about prior to the Big Day." ~ Karen Shaw Becker, DVM, Wellness Veterinarian

"This book, although for children, is a book for all ages. I loved it and will incorporate into my humane education program." ~ Marsa Hollander, Adoptions/Programs Manager, Pets In Need, Redwood City, CA

"This colorful picture book teaches children about the responsibility of adopting and caring for a pet!" ~ Dr. Gary Richter, #1 Amazon bestselling author of The Ultimate Pet Health Guide

From the Author

Our book is based on our true story.  This intrigued the 140+ Beta readers while testing our book before publishing it.  It struck a chord of intense curiosity. For instance, we were asked by the six- and seven- year olds, "Do frogs really eat each other?" Our answer was, "Some frogs do".  Or, "Did your daughter really have to do all of that before getting your dog?"  Our answer was, "Absolutely!"  The children were amazed!  One worried mother even approached us after a reading asking us more advice about how to curtail her son's wish to adopt a dog.  I suggested that she consider using our book as a guide and do what we did.

There are far too many families "caving in" to the desire to pick up that sweet little doggie in the window.  Our emotions get the best of us, we cross our intuitive, even declared boundaries, and adopt an animal against our best inner judgment.  And then, when struck with the intense level of responsibility, find following through with our commitment completely overwhelming.  Too many dogs are returned to the pound.  Too many family members' hearts are broken.

I raised Sheridan, in an age-appropriate way at each developmental level, so that she was very clear about the realities of life.  Our book, Much to Do Before a Dog, does not hold back.  Our experiences also are not romanticized.  Our Beta readers got that.  As we read our book to them about picking up the poop, we found them shaking their heads, shrugging their shoulders, and talking with their hands saying, "Well, it's true.  You have to do that when you have a dog."

Our best approach is to not pretend with our children and to trust that they are much smarter than most people give them credit for.  This book supports their high level of intelligence and speaks to them plainly, with credibility, instilling trust.  It holds their attention and leaves them wanting more.

If you tell us your kids are ready for Much to Do With a Dog, perhaps that will become our next endeavor!
