We were lucky when we found a new website and great source for books that all pet lovers will enjoy. Books that not only stimulate your mind but touch your heart as well. We love our animals...our Yorkies are our "furbabies"...they are part of our family....and act like it at times.
The site we found is "Lighthearted Press". And the author is Christine Davis, a true animal lover, for her passion is to elevate her readers into a whirlwind of emotions that pulls you into the lives of the animals you are reading about.
We got two books to read to the Yorkies....yes, I know reading to dogs is silly...welcome to our world. We will also read one of them to Nana's school kids. They too will love the story of Hero and experience the touching feelings of the story and the illustrations will stimulate their hearts and minds.
We received "The Shelter Dog" - A simple book that tells the story of an angel dog, Hero, who comes back to earth to begin the experience of being adopted. The illustrations are beautiful and will help you follow the story of Hero and how he finds his forever home. You'll want to read it again and again for it will touch your heartstrings for sure.
The second book we got was - "For Every Dog An Angel", the Yorkies will enjoy it but we won't read it to the kids at school for it touches the loss of a pet...something a little too personal for schoolkids to be taught at school. But we will offer the book to parents if they are interested. We got it because we have many friends who have suffered the loss of a pet. A loss that we have felt many times but know that we will see our pets again some day. The book tells the story of the deep love between a dog and their owner....a love that's forever indeed.
So please check out "Lighthearted Press" and enjoy all of Christine Davis's books. Some are at your local book stores,but if you still can't find them just go to "Lighthearted Press" website and go shopping. And remember to get a few for those special people in your life that also have been touched by an animals love.
And yes Tinkerbell I see you staring at me...I will read you these books one more time then you will have to entertain yourself....Yorkies love to be read to.
Thanks for stopping by and we hope you will enjoy reading these books as we did. And remember if you can't find them at your bookstore, just look on their website and get them all. Just link on to any of the books pictures and you will go directly to their website. Have fun and please come back and visit with us again. From all of the Yorkies at "Waterside Yorkies" we hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year....and may 2011 bring us all more happiness, love and peace.
