WOOFBOOKS Teachable Moments (A guide for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, and friends!)
We felt the need to provide an overview of our books, with a description of our overarching themes and ideas, for use in engaging in meaningful discussions after reading our books together with the kids. Order the book here.
The Adventures of Grandma Charlotte!
Come hang out with the coolest grandmas in town! In The Adventures of Grandma Charlotte!, Grandma Charlotte and her best friend, Grandma Shirley, will make you smile and giggle with stories of their adventures, and they might just inspire you to have adventures of your own! There is an educational section in back of the book guiding readers to learn more about the places mentioned in the story, and to explore their own way of doing something meaningful in the world. Based on true stories of these remarkable women!
Loved Charlotte. I want to be her! Love that she cared about the kitties. Loved the friendship between the ladies. Loved the geography lesson. The best yet! Her family must be thrilled. What a tribute! — Lois (Note: This book tells a totally true story!)
I love Adventures of Grandma Charlotte. Looking forward to reading it to my grandkids. Everyone should have a G’ma Charlotte. Keep writing! –Gwen
Can Sugar Come Out to Play?
This heartwarming story is about a sweet little rescue dog who goes to live in her “forever home,” where she learns about joy, friendship, caring, and unconditional love. The photographs are fabulous! The book promotes the concepts of animal adoption and making a lifetime commitment to our beloved pets. It is appropriate from toddlers to 12 year olds, but is loved by “kids” of all ages! It is guaranteed to make you smile from ear to ear!
Wow, this book is great! —Austin
My granddaughter Katharine (age 9) loves the book about Sugar! Each page turn brought squeals of delight when a new animal came along. She is duly impressed that Sugar’s “Mama” is my friend! –Jan
Charlie LOVED the book… The 7 yr old and almost 3 yr old liked your story too. So you got a great critique from a 3, 5 and 7 yr old. So glad I saw the write up in the Sunpaper! –Cindy
I LOVE IT. I love the photos, I love the colors, I love the way you use repetition to teach the message of sharing. I especially love the photo of “the kiss”. I love the personal info on the last page. I love the message to love no matter what. I love this book. Period. –Gail
Lucy the Amazing Wonder Dog
Get ready to giggle! Lucy the Amazing Wonder Dog can’t figure out why her mom calls her that; after all, she’s just an ordinary dog! Come find out just how “ordinary” she is! Based on the true antics of the author’s hilarious poodle mix, this book will make you giggle as Lucy uses her imagination. The book’s simplicity makes it well-loved by younger kids, and great for budding readers.
Mason the Ambassadog
FUN FACT! Mason and Second Chance were featured on THE ANIMAL PLANET’s TV show, “Amanda to the Rescue,” on December 2, 2018!
Filled with photographs of beautiful Puerto Rico, adorable dogs, and the “special angels” who care for them at Second Chance Animal Rescue of Puerto Rico, this book is educational in nature and is most appropriate for kids from 3rd-6th grade, though I’m sure it will be enjoyed by all. 10% of the proceeds from this book will always be donated to Second Chance, to help support the wonderful and much-needed work of this amazing rescue!
NEW! Mason’s story is now available in Spanish! Great for Spanish-speaking kids as well as for people of all ages who are learning Spanish–a great teaching tool for foreign language teachers!
SUGAR GOES TO THE DENTIST
Sugar Goes to the Dentist is perfect for little ones (toddlers through kindergarten) who may be a little bit afraid of dental check-ups. Sugar was afraid of her first appointment, too, until she had a really fun visit! Now she can’t wait to go back! Come see why in this fun and endearing book!
