Readers follow a fun-loving dog, Freddy who gets lost and asks God for friends to guide through his journey. In his travels, he meets faith, grace, and other useful animals that lead him to happiness, helping him reunite with his family. This adorable story teaches children the importance of family and having a relationship with God.
The author captures the readers’ imagination by maintaining an appropriate child-like voice they can relate to. Freddy’s playful innocence and willingness to ask for God’s assistance create a character that will entertain many of the readers.
Freddy’s nightly prayers will set a great example for children to follow as they read this book. The author explains how simple, yet profound prayer is in a casual tone, and children who have never prayed can easily become inspired to become closer to God.
The author creatively uses animals to symbolize various traits Freddy prays for. For example, when he is scared and prays for a friend, God sends him faith a coyote, helping him believe in himself. This is an innovative way to show children important values in an original manner.
This book was written to speak to the child that is in all of us. It is an amazing thing how animals play such an important role in all our daily lives. My little Dog Freddy is truly a special gift from God’s creation. Every day little Freddy puts a smile on my face and reminds me that miracles still and do happen. My prayer is that the pages in this book will truly come alive and be a blessing and inspiration to both the reader and listener.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”
