Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog

written and illustrated by Lisa Papp

Madeline Finn and the Shelter DogIf you like kids and reading and you have a heart for shelter dogs, then you will enjoy sharing Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog by Lisa Papp with a child in your life. The storyline is simple. A little girl, Madeline, begs her mother for a puppy. Mrs. Dimple, who volunteers at a shelter, has a rescue dog, Bonnie, with some pups. Madeline is allowed to choose one, and in the process she learns about shelters where animals wait for their forever homes as well as how to care for her new puppy. Madeline is a girl of action. She not only helps at the shelter, she also rallies her community to bring blankets and books to read to the shelter animals. Madeline Finn and the Shelter Dog is a sweet read with gentle and engaging illustrations.

I would like to extend my thanks to netgalley.com and to Peachtree Publishers (Myrick Marketing) for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

      Thanks. I read this a while back and am just getting it posted. I’m traveling and I was visiting someone whose Internet was down for almost the whole week I was there. My “already behind” has turned into “severely delayed.” I will have to just delete a lot of email notifications.😞

    Sounds so sweet and educational. I’d enjoy reading this to a child. I think I’d get quite a bit out of it too.

    My grandchildren and I enjoyed this story as well. Rescue animals need all the plugs they can get.
