THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE BEDTIME BOOK 
FOR DOGS
BY BRUCE LITTLEFIELD

ABOUT THE BOOK:
THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS is a charming story about a dog who decides that he'd rather walk to the park by himself than wait for his human companion-and discovers that all of his usual activities aren't as much fun without a good friend to share them with. This is an adorably packaged book with illustrations by Paul Heath that makes a perfect gift for dog lovers of all ages, with words dogs will understand and kids will want to read again and again.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Bruce Littlefield is a best-selling author and lifestyle expert. His brand of American fun is seen on the Today Show, the Early Show, and The View. He is the author of Airstream Living, Garage Sale America, Merry Christmas America, and co-writer of the best-selling Shark Tales with ABC Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran. Nothing makes him happier than his pal, Westminster. You can visit his website at BruceLittlefield.com.

MY REVIEW:
"Come. Sit. Stay. I want to tell you a story. I think you'll like it. It's about a TREAT and a good dog, a very good dog who wanted to go play. But his friend was busy....".  

Yes, here is the first charming book that has been published for dog lovers to read to their dogs, as well as to children. Children will in turn read it to their pet. THE BEDTIME BOOK FOR DOGS is written by best-selling author Bruce Littlefield who has taken this simple story and turned in into something the whole family can enjoy. With the average dog knowing 167 words, watch and see how your dog reacts to test how much smarter YOUR pet pup is. 

The simple, brightly colored illustrations make this a popular book with early readers for sure, as well as younger ones who will love to see the story unfold in pictures. Your dog will especially like the part about getting a treat while your youngster will like that their dog is referred to as their friend. Please don't think that this is a children's book as it is aimed at dog owners and dogs. Children liking the book is just a bonus as I see it. I am so excited that Ms. M, my Blog Assistant (see right column) will be enjoying this book with my grandson and his dad for years to come. She deserves it! Pick up a copy now and share it with your puppy dog. You won't be sorry and man's best friend will be delighted that you thought of something so special for them.

What a cute story. I would have fun reading this to my nephew. Dog stories are nice to read.

This week we adopted a new dog. She is a Belguim Malinois. She was trained as a drug dog, but then couldn't be certified because she is gun shy. She is extremely intelligent- and I have a feeling is going to keep me on my toes. I do have to learn her commands, because they are in German. This should be interesting.

This looks like a very cute book. (No leash laws, huh?)

My dog, Puppy, is celebrating his 10th birthday in August. I adopted him 6 years ago. We just never agreed on a name so he remained Puppy. He is a typical crazy min pin. Drives me nuts but I love him dearly.

Linda Kish said...

Westminster obviously got his name as he was discovered in a rescue van outside the Westminster Dog Show. He is a very lucky dog.

This sounds so cute. I would love to share it with my daughter. She loves dogs and they love her.

I've never had a dog b/c my dad is afraid of them and my mom is a clean freak. Hubby is also afraid of them. My daughter has been begging for one and he is putting her off as long as he can. No contest as to win this battle :)

I read that for one of his books, Garage Sale America, he took $1000 and a truck in search of treasures.

Hubby and I used to go on rummaging/garage sale excursions. But I prefer thrift stores b/c they're like a bunch of rummage sales under one roof with AC/heat.
