|Moose! The Reading Dog|
I first came across Moose's book at the Alamosa Public Library where I was looking for reading material to use in future animal-assisted interactions with elementary-aged children. As a teacher who loves to read with primary students, I was delighted to discover that Moose's story fit right in the sweet spot of that target group.

It is so easy to fall in love with Moose. My favorite illustrations in the book, as designed by Mic Ru, were those of this gentle giant (a 115-pound Saint Bernard mix). There was a sweet, friendly, and very huggable quality that flowed through the depictions of Moose. You could feel his great goodness.
As one who has always been very selective about the books I place in the hands of impressionable young children, Moose! The Reading Dog has earned my seal of approval for:
- being a book with the kind of positive messages that empower young people;
- presenting the kind of transformations that change lives for the good;
- offering up encouragement to children, and all of us really, about being true to whatever it is that frees us up to be our best, and to make it possible for others to become the best version of themselves.
