Overview

- Will ten-year-old Emma and her family be able to keep a dog that is afraid of almost everything?
Ginger is fearful. She hides in bushes and refuses to eat.

Based on a true story, this tells about Ginger's journey from a shelter to a loving home. Adopting Ginger is a story about compassion, cooperation and responsibility.

Linda Griffin, MS, retired teacher and author has written her first children's book, "Adopting Ginger." The delightful illustrations were done by her talented fourteen-year-old niece Iliana Weinbaum. "Children relate to the sweetness and simplicity of Iliana's watercolor drawings," said Ms. Griffin. The book is a must read for any family adopting a dog. What will Ginger's new family do? It is a story that dog lovers of all ages will enjoy.

Ginger was adopted at the SPCA of Westchester by Ms.Griffin's daughter and son-in-law. "I wrote Adopting Ginger because I felt it was a heartwarming story that had to be told." Ms.Griffin wants people to know how important it is to give shelter dogs time to adjust "Families will be rewarded for their kindness and patience by having a loyal and loving pet. Shelter dogs make the best pets ... their unique DNA creates a one-of-a-kind canine treasure!"

"Bringing a dog into your home is a big commitment, and that's why I included questions for families and school groups to use as a springboard for a discussion," stated Ms. Griffin. "Adopting Ginger raises awareness about how animals should be treated and the joy that comes from loving a pet."

Adopting Ginger is a page-turner and educational as well.

For readers ages 8 to 12
For listening ages 5 and up and dog lovers of all ages

This is a wonderful book! It's both entertaining an informative, with super illustrations--and it's based on a true story, which makes it even better. "Adopting Ginger" is a must book for any family adopting a pet from an animal shelter. In fact, it should be required reading!
