Daddy Chris & I, with my little black dress & pearls were the only ones dressed for the Los Angeles Book Festival Awards Ceremony since Mommy & GG discovered their garment bag had been accidentally left in Mexico. They said it just added to the memory of this very special event. ~ Feather

Testimonial from Kathryna

Kathryna ~ I was finally able to finish reading your beautiful book to Jack today, and he loved it! He is a fidgity five year old and had difficulty listening to your exceptional descriptions, merely wanting me to tell him a synopsis of the story in the beginning… BUT when it came to Feather’s race, he was happy to have me read every bit of the excitement! He was jumping up and down, ultimately pretending to be Feather crossing the finish line! Afterward, when I explained that it was a true story written by my friend and that Feather is a real dog, he begged to meet you and Feather. I told him that maybe we could meet up someday. You never know what life holds smile emoticon

“Magic Moment” testimonial from Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, Alaska  BrownPaperBagFrontCoverJanuary 25, 2016

We are foster parents of some pretty amazing young boys. We have 3 ranging in age, 7, 10, and 19. Our little guy struggles with multiple diagnosis, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and FASD (fetal alcohol spectrum disorder).

Every day is a struggle for him. Our family loves to read and seeing my littles snuggle up with a blanket and a story book make my heart sing. But my little guy will have none of it. I try to read to him and he is ok for a page or two and then he is just done. He struggles with reading at school, and some days this struggle leads to a meltdown.

Well last week he was having a difficult time transitioning from an activity and had a major behavior. Most times just giving him time to process will do the trick, but this day was not a good one. After giving him some time, he was not transitioning out of his meltdown. So I went for your book in hopes that a good read would get him to think of something else. (Yes, I know, books tend to get pushed away by this little guy, but I caught him looking at the cover the day before).

So I climbed up on the bed with the book and just started reading out loud. The next thing I knew, he was no longer trying to hurt himself and stopped throwing things. He was listening!!!!!? He then crawled on the bed with me, totally engrossed in this story. The pictures mesmerizing him and as he snuggled closer, I felt his little body melt into mine.  He began pointing and asking questions. He never does this.

After reading for a while and him picking out words he knew, our conversation began about how dogs can talk but not everyone understands what they are saying. That we have to pay attention to their queues. And he turned to me and said, “like when you knew I needed you to read me this book but I didn’t have to tell you?”

And that is our magic moment. He really listened and understood. Not to mention your Feather looks like our little long haired chihuahua, Beaner.

So thank you for this amazing story. He is looking forward to more.                                                                                                          Jan
