Book Review & Giveaway!

February 16, 2011



I love to read books to Bella & she LOVES to hear me read them and see the pictures.  It's become a nightly tradition in our house to read one story or book a night before bed.  So, when I was asked to do a review on a children's book called Mr. Bo Finds a New Home & Name by Timothy Battle,  I was ecstatic!  First thing I did was to look at the illustrations throughout the book.  I know Bella only likes books with "pretty pictures" and knew she would adore this book, because they are wonderful!

Let me sum the book up as best I can... It's about a cat named Linus that was in a shelter waiting to be adopted.  He sees a man come in that he knows will be his new owner, so he does everything he can to get the man's attention. Linus wants to find his own home & change his name.

It's such a great book about adoption & loving someone or something so much.  It seems like it would be a great book for parents of foster/adopted children to read to them and show that they are loved by their parents, no matter what. It also shows kids that we love and take care of our pets like they are children.  Bella knows to be nice to our puppies, but I think now she gets that they are also family, not just pets. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book to Bella & she loved to listen to it and look at the pictures.  It has now become a staple in our nightly book section of her bedroom!
