Several years ago, our family adopted a rescue dog. She is a small, but mighty chihuahua and is the sweetest thing! When I heard about the book, “Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends” – I was immediately drawn to it because Miss Olive is a rescue pup.
Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, the second installment in the Miss Olive children’s book trilogy The Doggy Diva Diaries, continues the rescue dog’s adventures with the adored pup celebrating her birthday and finding loving, supportive “furever” friends in the process. Written by Susan Marie and Miss Olive, and illustrated by Rebekah Phillips and Kim Ranson, the story has Miss Olive learning that when faced with bullying, her superpower is kindness, and that it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. It’s the kindness and love that you have on the inside that counts.
The colorful illustrations by Rebekah Phillips and Kim Ranson are very cute, especially the variety of dogs shown. It’s sure to delight young readers!
Susan Marie’s message about kindness and friendship is woven throughout “Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends.” The book is recommended for ages four through nine. It’s a wonderful story that illustrates important life lessons, like being brave and what it means to be a good friend. I sure wish that I had this book back when my daughter was in kindergarten!
Now you may wonder how the author, Susan Marie, became inspired to write this story. For over fifteen years, Susan Marie has been spreading the word about puppy love through her national weekly radio show, The Doggy Diva Show. On her show, Susan interviews pet industry experts, bestselling authors, pet health and lifestyle professionals and representatives from animal rescue organizations.
“Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends” is available now wherever books are sold. A portion of the book proceeds will be donated to animal-rescue services.
