Overview

Miracle Dogs of Portugal leads children on a voyage of discovery to 15th century Portugal, with the almost-true story of Henry the Navigator. When Henry was just a boy he summoned his own courage to take a surprising journey where he meets a delightful cast of characters - Milagro the Miracle Dog, Diego the fisherman, a cadre of sea creatures - and discovers his own dream.

This almost-true story of historical figure Henry the Navigator and the history of the Portuguese Water Dog is the first in a historical fiction series for children that explains the periods and characters of world history using dogs as the ambassador to learning. The Miracle Dog series is appropriate for ages 5-10.

Though the stories are fiction, the historical accuracy and context is designed to give children both the framework and the motivation to seek out more information about the character and the period in which the story is set, while inspiring them to make miracles in their own lives.

Meet the Author

Tracy Aiello is a former first grade teacher, business owner, columnist and all-around storyteller. In all her work she has told stories, whether it is retelling a children's book to first graders, or writing for daily and weekly news publications, trade journals, websites and marketing collateral.
Miracle Dogs of Portugal is the first in a series of almost-true stories that explain the periods and characters of world history using dogs as the ambassador to learning. As a former teacher she hopes the Miracle Dogs books will act as "seeing eye dogs" for children; opening their eyes to the rich stories of history and the miracles that one person can create in their own life. If kids have the courage to follow their dreams, if they have a loving community to support them and if they believe in miracles -- imagine what our world will become.
