Madeline Finn and the Library Dog

Written by Lisa Papp

Madeline Finn and the Library Dog Synopsis

Madeline Finn does not like to read. Not books. Not magazines. Not even the menu on the ice cream van. Fortunately, Madeline meets Bonnie, a library dog. Reading aloud to Bonnie isn't so bad. When Madeline Finn gets stuck, Bonnie doesn't mind. As it turns out, it's fun to read when you're not afraid of making mistakes. Bonnie teaches Madeline Finn that it's Okay to go slow, to keep trying, and to get support from a friend. A beautiful, reassuring, story for all those struggling to read. Perfect accompaniment for the 'reading dogs' programmes used by many schools and libraries. Money from the sales of the book will be donated to UK-based Pets As Therapy charity.

Madeline Finn and the Library Dog Press Reviews

It's a warm, encouraging story that suggests that perfection isn't necessary in order to achieve one's goals, and that help can be found in unexpected corners. Publishers Weekly. Softly coloured scenes have an old-fashioned feel, and the especially appealing canine characters enhance the comforting tone of the narrative. Booklist. So adorable readers may attempt to hug the page. Kirkus Reviews
