Book Review and Giveaway: Spot the Puppy. Ends Dec 27th

Author Emily G. Simmons.

Spot looks like your average puppy. He is brown, with a dark brown spot over his right eye. Judging by the way he looks, there is nothing terribly unique about Spot. But there is, in fact, something very different about him. And what makes Spot different from just any other puppy, is that he always stands up for what’s right. But just like anyone else, he was not simply born that way. O h, no! In face, Spot had to learn the hard way how important it is to stand up for right.

My Review: Spot the Puppy is a cute book about standing up for what is right. Spot is a lonely puppy who has no sibling to play with him. His parents told him that the only way to find friends is by going to the park. Off to the park the next day he came across a fierce looking bulldog named Butch who he later became friends with. The problem is that Butch the bulldog wasn’t a friendly dog. He was a bully, likes to frighten elderly ladies and stealing food from the back of grocery trucks. Spot knew that what Butch was doing was wrong but he didn’t want to be without a friend. The final straw came when Butch decided to steal from Spot next door neighbor puppy that just moved in. He stood up to Butch and told him to leave. 

Spot learnt that not doing right is just as bad as doing wrong. “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” James 4:17.

The last two pages gives bible scriptures and a call to salvation. I will recommend this book for kids ages 7 and up.

Pages: 34

Book 1 in a series of 22

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

  1. This is a book I would want my grand kids to read at their young ages. This is the time for them to learn and carry it into adulthood. I’m so glad to have met Emily through your blog Ella. Thanks for this opportunity. I commented on Emily’s interview.

  2. I think this would be a great book for my children to read, especially my son who is 5. He will be going to school next year and I want him to always stand up for what is right, even when it is not the popular thing to do.

  4. This looks like a great series of books. I homeschool my children and the lesson in this book is one they need to learn. They are so eager to have friends they too have a hard time sticking up for what is right. I love the scripture references and the call to salvation at the end of the books. I would definitely be interested in having the whole series for my kids.

  6. I would love for my girls to read this book because I think it is so important for them to know that not only should you not be a bully, but you shouldn’t stand by and let others be bullies either.

  8. This would be wonderful for my kindergarten class. Unfortunately, many of my students are not taught to do what is right at home.
