I gave this book to my six year old daughter as a Christmas gift. We read it together as a bedtime story and her first reaction was : "I want you to read it again right now!". In fact, she would have liked me to read it several more times that night. It is a beautifully illustrated, lovingly written story about a special dog who helps sick children get well. It touched each of us emotionally without being falsely sentimental. We both found it very interesting that it is based on true events. I certainly recommend it for children from 3 to 8 and feel older children would also find the story interesting. It is a wonderful book to give as a gift.
bought it for my adult cousin; i had not read it, but we both admire Goodall, so i hoped it would be good. my cousin texted she read it immediately and wept. a book that moves the reader - that is a great gift.
I loved this book,I will never loan it out, or give it away.It has such special meaning to me, as I own two of these dogs.LOVE IT LOVE IT
I bought this book for my daughter's summer reading list. It was a truly touching story, beautifully written and illustrated. My daughter loves animals, and to read about one who truly loves people was wonderful. My family really liked this book.
