We will be having our Tale Waggers program in April and hope all of you will join us to read to the dogs! Bring a favorite book or pick one of ours to share with some furry, loving friends from Love on a Leash. Parents, this is a perfect way for your reluctant readers to practice their reading. Registration for the program begins Monday, April 1 and if you want to sign up please click HERE. Here are some reviews on dog and cat books that I think you will enjoy. I can’t wait to go home and read to my tail wagger Ruby, she loves to be read to.
Bill Peet The Whingdingdilly 5 Star Review
Reviewed by Rachel Age 5
The book was sad. The dog wanted to be a show horse that everyone could love. So he ran away and the witch turned him into a Whingdingdilly. He ended up in a circus and very sad….. But the witch changed him back into a dog, and then he ran back home and was very happy. I liked this story alot even though the dog was sad, he was glad at the end.
Touch and Feel Puppy 5 Star Review
Reviewed by Keegan & parent Age 1
We love this book because it has spots you can touch. The puppies and kittens are so cute. They make me laugh. I love the puppies and kittens because they are just pictures and they cannot lick me!
Peg Kehret Runaway Twin 5 Star Review
Reviewed by Ben Age 10
The scariest part of the book was when Sunny and her dog Snickers got caught in a tornado. I think my friends should read this book because it proves that if you put your mind to something, you can always get it done. I would like to meet Charley because he seemed to be so nice and treats animals well. I recommend this book for people who like happy endings and adventure.
Erin Hunter Dark River 5 Star Review

This book is about 3 young apprentices in training to become Thunderclan warriors. Step into the paws of Jaypaw, Hollypaw and Lionpaw and experience the thrill of hunting, fighting and mysteries.
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor Shiloh 5 Star Review

The book was about a kid named Marty. One day when Marty was on a walk he found a dog when he passed Shiloh school. He named the dog Shiloh. When his dad found out, he knew he would have to return him to Judd but after Shiloh was attacked he saved up enough money to buy Shiloh. The end.

Nick Bruel Bad Kitty Gets a Bath 5 Star Review

Bad Kitty hates taking baths! The owner hates how Bad Kitty cleans herself. So the owner gives Bad Kitty a real bath. Bad Kitty was trying to hide. I liked Bad Kitty and really liked this story!
