If you like cute animal stories, you’ll want to grab a copy of Drewsilla the Shelter Puppy by Karen Carew Oakes.
After an accident leaves Drewsilla and her siblings orphaned, they are brought to the local shelter by a kind stranger. One after the other gets adopted, until the only one left is Drewsilla. Every time someone visits the shelter, she hides. Until the day the Johnsons walk in.
Drewsilla the Shelter Puppy is a touching story of how a shelter puppy finds her forever home. There are a lot of neat aspects to this story. It highlights the kindness of strangers, the hard work of shelter volunteers, and the difference it can make to humans and animals when a special bond is created. Not only would this be a heartwarming story to share with children, it would also be an entertaining way to introduce young people to what is involved in puppy care.
This truly is a sweet story.
