My 5 year old son LOVES this book. It is a great true story about a little dog that gets rescued from the ice on the Baltic Sea. We first checked this out from the library and have picked it up countless times. Going to get my son his own copy for his Birthday!
This is a great, heartwarming story about the goodness of man and our bonds with animals. The art is charming and it describes an area that may be unfamikiar to most children.
