TOBY

by

Hazel Mitchell

 

 

Rescue dogs can be afraid and need time to adjust to their new home and family. Toby is a good example of how a dog can wriggle his way into the heart of a family using their cute personality. I'm impressed by the boy's hard work with Toby before his Dad can decide that maybe Toby isn't the right dog for them.

The boy learns responsibility as he works with Toby and we see his love for the dog, and his compassion that Toby needs to adjust. With the delightful and vivid illustrations, also done by the author, we see the bonding process that goes on between them.

Toby is a cute, engaging story about friendship and love that forms between a child and a dog. This book is well worth the addition to any child's, classroom or library shelf. 5 STARS!

Where Do Fairies Go When It Snows - Liza Gardner Walsh,Hazel Mitchell

Where Do Fairies Go When It Snows is a whimsical tale that questions what fairies do during the winter months. Do they hibernate? Do they bundle up? What do you believe?

 

The book is stated as being for grades Preschool – Second Grade (2 – 7 years) but I think that is stretching it a bit. My daughter is seven and just entering second grade and it took her maybe two minutes to read it. It’s definitely more appropriate for younger readers. That said, my daughter did enjoy it as she loves fairies and has asked before what fairies do when it’s cold outside. The text is accompanied with cute drawings while will help appeal to younger readers as well.

 

Overall, a cute read.

 

I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
