Three young sisters ask for a dog. Eventually, their parents give in, and later wonder why they had ever been reluctant. They get Brandy Wilbur Pie–a dog who carries out many jobs for lots of people and in the process shows the sisters a spectacular way to live.
This is a “Let’s-Solve-the-Mystery-about-Gramma” book. The storyteller leads the readers on a search for clues to find the long-lost recipe for Gramma’s incredible toasting bread. They look into Gramma’s life for clues and learn her unique recipes for making more than just bread! Includes a recipe for children to make their own bread, quickly and easily.
One of the sisters from The Shared Dog book has grown up and moved far from her home to teach science in Arizona. Many of her young students come from Indian Nation reservations hours away. They must live in dormitories to attend school. The teacher and her students are homesick, until a herding-working dog enters their lives and changes everything!
Christmas is approaching and Nurse Glo works night shifts at a children’s hospital. Unhappy about her mom leaving for work, her young daughter copes by carrying out jobs of her own in the home, including making treats for Santa on Christmas Eve. Glo’s young patients worry that Santa won’t find them in the hospital.
Loved The Shared Dog. A story of sisters getting a dog suddenly becomes a family journey through enjoyed life together. The bittersweet sneaks up on you in a true to life way.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Shared Dog, a Brandy Pie story. Kathleen Harward does an excellent job of portraying every child's dream of owning and caring for a pet of their own. Using true-to-life characters, this book will show your children how a little persistence can change the course of your life forever! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series - The Lost Recipe!
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!
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.
