What they’re saying about it:

I recently purchased this book for my granddaughter and she can’t get enough of it. Her Mom reads it over and over again to her as it is, far and away, her favourite bedtime story. She is only 2 but already recognizes many of the words and has practically memorized the story. Her favourite part is when Sunshine is making faces to get her great grandpappy to smile! Even at her young age, she already understands how important it is to smile and how smiling can make other people happy. It is colorfully illustrated on every page which youngsters find highly appealing. Without giving the story away, I can only say that this book should be on every child’s bookshelf.

Andy-Roo is a young puppy who grew long legs and feet, quite different from the other kids at the playground.  This book tells his story, especially how he overcame his differences and became a popular player in little league games.

What they’re saying about it:
*
When I first received Andy-Roo I have to admit, my first thought was that the characters reminded me of Bert and Gert (you know the “Stay Alert, Stay Safe” bunnies. Oh, well… I’m dating myself!) but I really enjoyed the story. My girls and I have read this book several times and after reading it my daughter who just stared JK in September usually wants to have a conversation about recess – who plays nicely, and who has friends to play with. It gives us a great opportunity to talk about things like playing kindly, tolerance and how there will always be people who we are different from. This is a great read for younger children! I actually purchased a copy of this book for my kindle so we could take it with us. The pages are not too wordy – which is great for my 3 and 4 year old as they do no loose interest or get distracted when we are reading, and it is written in a way that they understand. The illustrations leave a bit to be desired,they do look a bit like stock images but my girls didn’t mind so I’m not going to dwell on it!
