Sugar's Furry Friend

Today, I bring you a special book review and guest post from a very special little person. Recently, I won a contest at Golden Woofs - Sugar the Golden Retriever's blog. It was for a copy of a children's book written by Sugar's mom - Maria Rosalyn Acero. The book is titled "Sugar's Furry Friend" and it's about Sugar's friendship with Fred the chipmunk throughout the seasons. It's based on a true story.

I was so excited when I got the book in the mail. Lily, my daughter, loves to read. She especially loves to read anything that has to do with animals. When she got to the back of the book, she saw that there were two pages to color in. Well, she also loves to color and got so excited that she immediately got her crayons out and went to work.

I asked Lily if she would write a review of Sugar's Furry Friend for my blog and she agreed. She spent a lot of time writing the review. Here's what Lily has to say about Sugar's Furry Friend -
"In Sugar's Furry Friend, Sugar meets a chipmunk and they become friends. Sugar meets the chipmunk in a bush. What I like about the book is that it has coloring pages on the back and that it is easy to read and that it is based on a true story. I think that other kids would like to read this book."

A big GOLDEN thanks to Sugar and her mom for giving us the chance to win a copy of their fabulous book. We enjoyed it very much and recommend it if you're looking for a great children's book!

You can purchase the book for Kindle here through Amazon. Or you can purchase a good old fashioned copy of the book at Sugar's Paw House.
