Publisher's Description

Why Dogs Are tells the story of how a dog teaches some life lessons to a very special child. It seeks to explore the concept of God s unconditional love and how someone without the ability to see or hear can comprehend its scope and His impact in our lives. Named a Finalist in the non-profit Indie Book Awards (category Spirituality, 2014), 100% percent of net profits from book sales goes to charities that train and support therapy dogs. The book is first in a series called Love Unleashed. The author s own dog Muttley was a therapy dog that brought his light and love to nursing home residents and to children with disabilities. Born deaf and blind, Brian was the inspiration for the book. His character is a composite of the many children who attended the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind who had to learn to live life with one or more disabilities. Why Dogs Are is everything a good children s book needs to be engaging and delightful, said Amy S. Royal, professional freelance editor. But when an author tackles a big concept and manages to convey it in a simple, yet powerful way, good becomes great. Great becomes wonderful. Wonderful becomes very special. This is an engaging, delightful and very special book with a story and message that will live forever. "

    This is a sweet and well written and well illustrated book about how dogs came to be named dogs. I believe that young children will love to look at the pictures and have the story read to them. I received this book from book fun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    I thought this book sounded like such a cute book and one that I would treasure reading with my daughter. But, when I finally read the book I was extremely disappointed. I will not be reading this to my child as it states that dogs were just hanging around heaven until this little boy needed a companion. The very concept of the book is anti-Biblical. I'm sure there would have been better ways of showing God's unconditional love to the little boy than to flat out give erroneous information about why dogs are on earth and where they came from. If you read in Genesis 1, you know that dogs were created on the sixth day of creation. They were not just playing around in heaven. No where in the Bible is this idea supported.

    Why would I read a book to my child (or any child) for that matter that goes against what the Bible teaches. Children are so impressionable, which is why I will not be reading this book to my child and cannot recommend that others read this book to theirs. While I'm sure the intention was good, the way it was done was not. I cannot in good conscience recommend this book at all.

    I received this book for free from the BookCrash program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
