When I setup this page for reviews I never dreamed I'd be reading such a wide smorgasbord of genes. OK, I could see YA and maybe young YA.. BUT, I hold the line on books that you read to those sitting on your knee... WELL, I did until.....
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat
by Greta Burroughs
Every one was praising Greta's books. So, I asked and..
Greta graciously sent me a copy of one of her stories. She did good. For, I enjoy my Cats and Dogs. Her story reminded me of the days long gone when I was read tales to as a child. The tales reminded me of the times I read books to my own children, years ago. And on the next visit from the grandchildren a new memory will be formed.
The drawings inside the book are enchanting. Each individual story exciting for all children. Even the inner child that lingers deep inside of you and me.
Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat is a fun read to have read to you or to read yourself. But, be warned Greta Burroughs is sneaky.
At the end of each unique episode is a section with three questions. So expertly, done to make the conversion with the child fortunate enough to be by your side to continue by helping them learn from Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat’s adventures.
So, go get yourself a copy to share with someone on your knee, or to lose yourself in a memory. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh, to be young again snugged down in my bed as Dad read me a story. I think Patchwork Dog and Calico Cat would have given 'The Pokey Little Puppy' a run for it.
