My older sister is a children’s librarian and although she knows I am an adult male, she still likes to give some of the books she reviews to me. Don’t get me wrong—
I love it! My Christmas gifts were Before You Were Mine and The Shelter Dog.

Each one is a short read, but they share many common elements of pet companionship. They beautifully illustrate the child-like wonder of having a four-legged best friend. Sure, they’re meant for kids, but the emotions and connections displayed in these books are universal. ~ Brendan Quealy
