The Dog Who Healed a Family by Jo Coudert is a collection of true life stores about animals, who are more then just animals, they are family. These stories show the lengths families will go for their pets. You will read about hope, love, humor and so much more.
A brief about The Dog Who Healed a Family:
In this charming collection of nineteen stories, you can’t help but fall in love with the unlucky fawn who is saved by a nursing home, the troublesome rabbit who warms her way into a new family and the good (German) shepherd who comforts the sick. These are stories of hope, humor, triumph, loyalty, compassion, life and even death—but most of all, these are stories of love and the extraordinary animals who make our lives the richer for it.
What I thought: These types of stories are what I love reading. I love reading true stories, whether it is about animals, or about someones life. While reading The Dog Who Healed a Family, I found myself crying almost all the way through the book. I guess you can just call me a crybaby. However, that is normal when I read, if I hit a sad part the tears start rolling. If I was asked to pick which story I liked the best, I would not be able to do it. All these stories hit me in a different way.
I personally feel this would be a great book for teenage girls. I know I will be passing this on to my daughter, she is a animal lover, and I see her also enjoying this book as much as I did.
