Review of Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, & a Miracle
8/17/2010 5:26:26 PM
Review of 2011 Colorado Children's Book Award Nominees

Here is the fourth review of the 2011 Colorado Children's Book Award Nominees.

Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle by Major Brian Dennis, Kirby Larson, Mary Nethery
Ages: 0-Adult

Good Luck reading this picture book with dry eyes!!

Nubs tells the story of the friendship between an Iraqi homeless dog and U.S. Major Brian Dennis. Abused and abandoned, the dog Major Dennis named Nubs was the leader of his own pack of soldiers, many of them puppies. Befriended by Major Dennis, Nubs leads readers on his miraculous journey that ended in San Diego, CA.

Heart-wrenching are the scenes of Nubs running to catch up with Major Dennisí departed Humvee and team. Heart-warming is the bond that immediately developed and continued between Major Dennis and Nubs. A sure reminder that little kindnesses are rewarded.

An added extra are the journal pages and pictures of Major Brian Dennis.


A brief explanation: I put the age level of zero on a lot of books because most are suitable for reading out loud to young people and that includes babies. If we donít read to them from day 1, then we are depriving them of the enjoyment of words.
