Lilah helps me review LULU AND THE DOG FROM THE SEA
LULU AND THE DOG FROM THE SEA by Hilary McKay: My six-year-old daughter and I both enjoyed this sweet story about a stray dog and a girl who decides he just needs a friend. This is a short chapter book (I think we read it in a single bedtime) with lovely messages: kindness to animals (and to the less fortunate), tolerance, compassion. This is also a successful depiction of a family of color with no mention of race. The second we finished reading this one, my daughter begged to hear it again.
Source disclosure: I received an e-galley of this title through NetGalley.
