Madeline Finn and the Library Dog, Paperback / softback Book

Madeline Finn and the Library Dog Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Lisa Papp

Paperback / softback


Madeline Finn does not like to read. Not books. Not magazines. Not even the menu on the ice cream van. Fortunately, Madeline meets Bonnie, a library dog. Reading aloud to Bonnie isn't so bad. When Madeline Finn gets stuck, Bonnie doesn't mind. As it turns out, it's fun to read when you're not afraid of making mistakes.

Bonnie teaches Madeline Finn that it's Okay to go slow, to keep trying, and to get support from a friend.

A beautiful, reassuring, story for all those struggling to read.

Perfect accompaniment for the 'reading dogs' programmes used by many schools and libraries.

Money from the sales of the book will be donated to UK-based Pets As Therapy charity.
