Readers’ Comments: “a charming children’s book.” “Your questions were good thought provokers, getting kids to take the photos and narrative a step further.” “It’s kid-friendly and informative.” “Your book is delightful. You make it very inviting.”

Two elementary school librarians had this to say:   “The interactive quality allows for dialogue, discussion, response and deeper observation—really a nice feature.”  And, “Non-fiction is being focused on increasingly in the schools and this book fits right into that category.”

Example of what you will SEE INSIDE the book:


Bonnie and Clyde are two of the dogs that defend the sheep and goats. The dogs are a breed called Akbash (“ockbosh”). Bonnie barks whenever this sheep tries to sneak nibbles of dog food from the bucket.
