Book Review/Giveaway: Adventures with Buster. Ends April 29th
Adventures with Buster: The Adventures Begin with a Guide Dog Named Buster by London Lake Pickett and illustrated by Lynda F Wilson
About the Book: Adventures with Buster” is a children’s book that will entertain and educate readers about guide dogs and blindness. This is the first book in which London Lake Pickett shares experiences she has had with her guide dog named Buster.
My Review: Meet Buster a Guide Dog who is trained to guide, protect and follow commands in public and at home.
The author London L. Pickett is blind in her left eye and has about ten percent of her vision in her right eye, she shares her story about Buster. Buster is a black Goldador born at the Southeastern Guide Dogs and professionally trained. When London met Buster it was love at first sight. The time she spent with Buster showed her that he was a strong, smart and gentle dog. She also found out that Buster likes to chew acorns, grass, sticks, rock and even feathers, and even likes to chase bunnies and eat frogs.
Buster wears a harness only when he is working with a sign on the harness that says, “Please don’t pet me I’m working”. It is important to ignore a guide dog when he/she has a sign like that on. There is a list of commands that a guide dog and its owner need to know, this is to ensure their owner gets around safely.
This is a great educational story not only for children but for adults as well. The Illustrations by Lynda Farrington Wilson helps tell the story.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
