How Sadie Learned to SMILE

How Sadie Learned to SMILE - Linda Boulanger, Christina Janzen This is a very sweet little book that will teach kids about animal rescue, as well as being kind to animals and each other.Sadie, the little dog in the story, finds herself in a rescue facility after her family moves away. She learns to trust people and other animals again through kind and gentle treatment that helps her to "SMILE" (see magic in life every day).As a humane society volunteer, I have to say that books like this are vital to helping kids understand that animals are a commitment and not something to be discarded like a broken toy. There is also an underlying current here, as Sadie meets new animal friends, of being kind to each other.Well done, and highly recommended.
