Reviewed by Edith Wairimu for Readers' Favorite Learn how to help, empathize, love and care through Walker Jean Mills’ story, The Good Dog. Charlie, Daisy’s dog, is getting stitches at the vet. Daisy is eager to see him and as soon as she gets permission to see her dog, she bursts through the door. Charlie seems downcast and in pain. He hangs his head and appears to be sleepy which is quite different from his usual happy and excited nature. It is at this moment that Daisy recalls all that Charlie means to her. She remembers all the times he has helped her and cared for her. She realizes it is now her turn to emulate Charlie’s traits. She learns to care and be attentive to other people’s needs just like her dog. The Good Dog by Walker Jean Mills is beautifully and adeptly designed to show the need for having compassion for others. It is a story that any young reader will have no trouble relating to. The characters are fun and authentic. Charlie’s character is especially inspirational. He shows us what we can learn from each other and how best we can relate to those around us. In a self-absorbed world, Walker Jean Mills’ book will go a long way in helping young readers shift focus from themselves to people who are in need of attention and love. The illustrations are also well designed to give priority to and highlight each main character in the two sections of the book. The Good Dog is a must-read for everyone, especially young readers.
