Daisy goes into the veterinarian's office to pick up her dog who's had a procedure. She reflects on all the wonderful things her dog has done to help her when she's needed it.
I purchased several children's books for my workplace lobby, but because of Covid, we can no longer have any reading materials. So, I'll keep this cute and inspirational book at home as a pick-me-up.
Even though intended for children, it's endearing with an uplifting message. ...more
I explained to my almost 8-year old grand-daughter that the author sent us the book and that she would like to know what we think about it. She read it and told me she thought it was "okay". She said her favorite part was when Charlie helped Daisy with her chores. I asked her what she thought about the illustrations, ...more
I received this free book from Goodreads first reads.
It was a sweet book and taught a great lesson about kindness. I was a bit bummed to find there was a biblical tie-in, which is something I would not have in my classroom. I'll pass this along to someone else who might appreciate it more. ...more
My first reaction was to the " high-five " shared between the little girl and the dog! ( big smile)

When it arrived, he was so thrilled ( he loves book mail too) that it was all he chattered about that evening . I read it to him and he folliwed along , pointing out thing ...more
First, the pictures are mostly black-and-white, with one specific character or focal point in color. While ours was typically happy to have it read "again" and "again", the book would certainly be more captivating if the pictures were in full color.
Going a step fur ...more
My 2 year old was really into it, whereas my 4 year old got a bit bored and distracted towards the last few pages. He was more into the book he was holding to read next. Interested to see what my next one thinks and how this book fare in the upcoming years.
As an adult, the book pulls on your heartstrings and give you a different perspective on life and your relationship with those around you. It's very simpl ...more
It's a lovely book that as both a dog mom and a boy mom, I will read again and again with my little group.
Partiality aside, The Good Dog is a simple and sweet story about Daisy and Charlie. Daisy, I assume, is reflecting on what her dog means to her following a vet visit. The first half, Daisy reminisces on the goodnes ...more
A cute little book with unique illustrations! I loved the contrast between the black/white/color. I'm not sure how a kid would like the lack of color in the book but I enjoyed it. The book also talks of being a good person and doing good things will get you far.
On the other side, I didn't care for the NIV verse in the back of the book. I use the KJV and don't believe the NIV version is translated as God i ...more
What a beautiful message of how our "furry" best friend in our families, are also our very best teacher, of how each of us should teach by example, and always follow the "Golden Rule", of how we should all treat each other with compassion, kindness, understanding, and love, regardless of what we have in c ...more
And it is just that: short and sweet.
However, I think my kids' reviews are more appropriate for this one.
My 3-year-old daughter wasn't overly thrilled. She liked the doggy...And that was all.
But my 7-year-old son said it was "awesome!" He appreciated the gray-scale background in most of the pictures and what that signified. He said it's a go ...more
Daisy is his human. We are going to follow along as they go about
their days & nights- except something happens in the beginning that
shifts Daisys outlook on things. She sees So many things that Charlie does all around every day, right under her nose :-) she watched and realized hhmm. Daisy wondered could she? Maybe she could.
use Charlie as must read this yourself, then with a child or a group ask them what they can do not ...more
We have read this book several times since receiving it. My son it 6 and really likes it. He has a dog and was comparing his dog to Daisy the dog in the story. For us, the story was the right length, because my son falls asleep fairly quickly at night. He enjoyed the pictures because they reminded him of what he draws. He loves to draw with pencils and keep them simple.
The book has a wonderful message, but it is ...more
My issue is really about the writing and I can't say that it was supposed to be done differently. I just think about myself, as a young child, and I would've past and asked to be read ...more
Love the scripture at the end of the book: Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 This is such an important scripture that is needed in the times and reckless political climate we are in now.
This book can teach us adu ...more
I know my 3 youngest grandchildren, even though all boys, ages 5, 7 and 9, will all enjoy reading or hearing me read to them aloud.
Thanks to the author for choosing my name in this giveaway.
I love the Bible verse she put at the back of the book "And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, eve ...more
