Operation Rescue Dog by Maria Gianferrari (Illustrated by Luisa Uribe)
Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Operation Rescue Dog is a sweet story about a lonely young girl who journeys with her Abuela to meet and adopt a rescue dog. Told from both the point of view of the girl and the dog she rescues, it is a wonderful story of the transformative power of friendship and love.
The language such as, “Can a dog feel like a hug?” is poetic and beautiful and the soft hues of the illustrations are a perfect compliment.
The story is followed by an author’s note which discusses pet rescue and even includes a glossary of Spanish words used in the text.
Beautiful language, illustrations, and a wonderful message make this a clear picture book winner but beware- you may end up welcoming a furry friend into your life at the end!
