It's hard to believe this is Kathy's first book. It's so well done, and the illustrations are beautiful. I love this story, as it strongly brings back the emotions I've had through the years of bringing a new dog (and cat) into our family, and then experiencing the circle of life with them. Congratulations to Kathy and her team...I'm looking forward to seeing what they have next for us!
The Shared Dog book touches the heart of anyone who has ever owned and loved a dog. The joy of experiencing the unconditional love of a dog is held tenderly in ones heart with the pain that comes when it's time to say goodbye. I loved this book and look forward to reading The Lost Recipe.
What an amazing children's book! I love the writing and illustrations. It's amazing what a dog can bring to a family and this is a special story.
Three-year olds have already begun trying to figure out the reasons for everything. If we live to 100, we will still be doing this. Our stories have something for the head and heart of any age.
Our books are the result of the self-guided labors of many, combined by The Invisible Hand that guides a voluntary marketplace.
Small children would rather play with the stuff in your kitchen cupboard than a toy. Ours are the “pots and pans” stories of living.
