More than just a story about a responsible dog owner, it brings to light an important life lesson that every child should know—you are beautiful, special, and loved. MY students loved it! — Trina Locke, 3rd Grade Teacher

A charming rhyming read about a delightful Cavalier puppy that will enchant children and their parents, too! Beautifully illustrated, its message of love proves nurturing is its own reward.” —Patricia V. Trotter, breeder, judge, author—”Born to Win”

In this highly competitive world where everyone wants to be a star, this sweet story is a breath of fresh air! The tale of Star reminds us that self-worth is about who we are, not about what we achieve. It is also a great education as it teaches the importance of being a caring dog owner. Once again, thank you so much for the book! — Dennis Homes, author, Leogem Cavaliers UK

As I read the story (being a pastor), I couldn’t help seeing it as a sort of parable. Like Jesus’ parables, it takes something we have experience with and teaches us deeper spiritual truths. Captured in the story is the truth that God has a desired future for us, a future that becomes a reality as we are loved by God and respond to that love. What wonderful illustrations of the Journey God invites us to take with Him!
