Book Review/Giveaway: Toby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital Friends. Ends April 7th
Toby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital Friends by Author Charmaine Hammond and illustrated by Rose Anne Prevec
About the Book: Toby is a big, brown, happy dog. Every week, his owner, Miss Charmaine takes him to visit and comfort children who are in the hospital. Follow Toby the service dog for a day, and see how he makes friends with the children, helps make them happy.
My Review: Toby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital Friends is based on a true story from the book and movie Toby’s Terms. This book tells an amazing story about Toby the pet therapy dog, who volunteers in a hospital once a week to cheer up sick children. Toby not only helps the children but also help the elderly. This story not only helps children to care but learn how to be kind and also encourage them to help others.
This book is fun and educational with questions at the end of the book about enhancing children’s critical thinking skills about the story. I always like illustrations that help tell the story and Rose Prevec did just that. I highly recommended this book for classroom teaching.
Note that a therapy dog is a friend to everyone! Therapy dogs are extremely patient, loving and provide great companionship.
