The Book

This book is a celebration of owning and loving a dog unconditionally.  It shares the reciprocal love between small humans and their faithful doggie friends.  "My Best Friend"  labels a dog as a BFF.  Dogs are soft, cuddly, warm and always there for you.  They are loyal,  constantly love your company, and happily follow you everywhere you go.  

This heartwarming story is a reminder to revere your pet when they are showing you affection or even when they are being a bit naughty as most dogs are from time-to-time.  Dog lovers both young and old will identify and confirm what a wonderful contribution a dog makes in their lives. 

The watercolour illustrations are wonderful and draw you into the narrative.  The diverse array of dogs and kids portrayed are a joy to behold.   I love the book and highly recommend it.
