Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle and Jill McElmurry
Little Blue Truck

dogismycopilot, July 11, 2014

This board book is a hit with my 2-year-old and has been since he was several months old. He loves the bright, colorful illustrations, the rollicking, song-like text, and the camaraderie between Little Blue and the animals that he meets as he travels across the countryside and helps a misguided dump truck in a sticky situation. I like the message of teamwork and respect, as well as the text that lends itself to singing and sound effects. I highly recommend this for all smaller children!

The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses (Richard Jackson Books) by Paul Goble
The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses (Richard Jackson Books)

dogismycopilot, July 11, 2014

This is one of the best children's books that I've come across. The story of a young Indian girl who tends her tribe's band of horses is eloquent and touching, and the illustrations are strikingly beautiful. I read it with my 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son regularly, and the story prompts discussions about families, love, and how legends are created. This is a treasured part of our book collection.

Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear
Dougal the Garbage Dump Bear

dogismycopilot, April 6, 2014

Dougal is a shy little bear whose luck turns from terrible to wonderful. He is tossed out in the garbage because he is not as new and fancy as some other stuffed animals, but he then finds a whole new world and a wonderful collection of "new" friends who similarly have a lot to offer other than fancy good looks. This is one of our family's absolute favorite children's books!

Strange Fruit: The Biography of a Song by David Margolick
Strange Fruit: The Biography of a Song

dogismycopilot, October 27, 2011

I read this book after using the California Newsreel/Independent Lens DVD by the same name in several of my college courses. The book is insightful and very interesting. My only complaint is that I wish it was even more in depth!

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
Eating Animals

dogismycopilot, January 22, 2011

I read this book primarily because I have enjoyed several other books by this author. I was intrigued by the subject matter as well, though. I am a struggling vegetarian, meaning that I try to be one but falter on an infrequent basis. This book has helped me reconsider my choices, as well as how I rationalize what, and how, I eat. Foer does not demand that the reader give up eating animals, but he does demand that you take a closer look at how you approach the subject on an intellectual and moral level.
