Book Review/Giveaway: Vacations with Buster (The Buster Series, #2) Ends August 23rd
Vacations with Buster (The Buster Series, #2) The Adventures Continue with a Guide Dog Named Buster by London Lake Pickett, illustrated by Lynda Farrington Wilson
About the Book: “Vacations with Buster” is the second book in a series about guide dogs and blindness. London Lake Pickett shares experiences she has had with her guide dog named Buster. Although it is a children’s book, the story will entertain and educate all readers.
My Review: If you are a dog lover then this is the book for you. Vacations with Buster is London Pickett’s second book in the Buster series. For those who haven’t read the first book, the author is blind in one eye and can see with only 10% in the other eye and Buster is her guide dog. With Buster’s help they are able to educate people about the importance of a Guide Dog and Blindness.
Every year they visit schools to talk about blindness and the importance of not distracting guide dogs when they are working. The good time to play with a guide dog is when the owner takes off the harness. Buster enjoyed playing with the kids when he doesn’t have the harness on. He rolls on his back so that his tummy can be rubbed. The author goes on to talk about taking Buster to the beach where Buster spend a lot of time smelling new things like birds, crabs, fish and turtles. On their way to the mountains, Buster couldn’t wait to get out of the car and run around smelling bears, possums, snakes and more.
Buster wasn’t only being a guide dog, he also spend time being a regular dog. According to the author, “Buster knows he is working when he has his harness on and knows he is off-duty when I take the harness off”.
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.
