From the creator of the New York Times best-illustrated children's book award winner The Only Child, comes a gorgeous and moving wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers. In this heartwarming, wordless picture book that's perfect for dog lovers, a woman visits a park and discovers a pup hiding under a bench--scruffy, scared, and alone. With gentle coaxing, the woman tries to befriend the animal, but the dog is too scared to let her near. Day after day, the woman tries--and day after day, the dog runs away. With perseverance and patience--and help from an enticing tennis ball--a tentative friendship begins. But it's not until a raging storm forces the two together that a joyous and satisfying friendship takes hold. Guojing poignantly explores how trust doesn't always come easily, but how, over time, and with kindness and determination, forever love can grow. Praise for Stormy: "Guojing amplifies the suspense and sentiment of her story with the skill -- and mercilessness -- of a great Disney or Pixar director.... Masterful." --New York Times Book Review "A touching tale about the strong emotional connection between dog and human." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Guojing paces the story to rock emotionally between the dog's lonely existence and the woman's offer of love, building all the way to a joyful conclusion." --Publishers Weekly, starred review " Adults should be prepared for some serious pet pleading after kids get a look at our scruffy hero and its happy ending."--Bulletin, starred review "Brimming with golden-hued love, this is a book that successfully appeals to our most basic human sentiment, perfect for anyone who appreciates Guojing's accomplished visual style as well as dog lovers of all ages." --Booklist, starred review "This beautifully illustrated book will appeal to a wide range of ages, can spark conversations around houselessness and insecurity, or just be enjoyed as a tale of a dog finding a "forever home." --School Library Journal

Why would anyone want to read a story about the rescue of a Pit Bull? Although the story of Finding a Forever Home, The True Story of Rescuing Ellie Bleu is a heartfelt journey of a dog being rescued, the important underlying message is to address hurtful and dangerous prejudices. Ellie Bleu is a Pit Bull. Pit Bulls are victimized by the prejudice that they are all dangerous and can be evil. There are localities that are even legislating the ban of Pit Bulls. The book challenges how and why there are prejudices against people and pets.

This book presents a way to open minds to the discussion of how and why we hold negative beliefs. The book speaks to the ideal that people should behave with love and understanding. For everyone that has an influence over others, Finding a Forever Home is the springboard to have the conversation and thoughts about examining prejudices. An in-depth discussion of prejudies provides the opportunity to look for the reasons to love and celebrate differences as opposed to finding reasons for rejection.

Royalties from the book are donated to Rescue Groups and Organizations that help those victimized by prejudices.

Come with Beamer and his dear friend Anna as they visit the shelter to meet some adorable dogs. Delight in Anna’s excitement as she finds that one special dog to call her very own. You’ll be smiling with delight as Mr. Puppy gets his forever home. “Cindy Chambers has once again given us a road map to bringing joy and happiness into the lives of children through the kindness and humanity of pet adoption. Having an animal companion in the home has shown to have great benefits to the physical and psychological health of humans. Adopting a pet has profound positive impact on the animals and their new family members.” Edward Puccio, MD, FACEP President & Medical Director, Department of Emergency Medicine, Inova Loudoun Hospital “The story delightfully demonstrates the special relationship shared between children and their pets. While entertaining and appealing to the small readers, the book also provides insight to the world of animal rescue and pet ownership. As a veterinarian, the human-animal bond and the role pets play in family life is a marvelous phenomenon that I am privileged to see every day. Encouraging children in appropriate dog handling and care is certainly beneficial for the family’s two and four-legged members. The introduction to pet adoption to not only young readers, but also to their parents, is heartening to read, as so many rescue pets would integrate well into family life. The lessons that Cindy Chambers has so artfully shared in this book will surely have positive influences on children, their families, and numerous pets.” Elizabeth Byers Associated Veterinarian, Towne Animal Clinic, Leesburg, VA “What a wonderful and endearing story. It most definitely struck a chord in this animal rescuer’s heart and I am filled with gratitude. The message this book sends is gentle enough for a child, but strong enough to encourage parents to consider the adoption of a shelter animal. As a mother who has raised her children around rescue dogs, I cannot emphasize enough the deep connection- the unconditional love, loyalty and friendship between a child and their adopted four-legged companions. Opening your heart and home to an animal in need is one of life’s greatest and most rewarding gifts. I am incredibly grateful to Cindy Chambers and to Tell Me Town for beautifully expressing such an important message to families that may be considering the addition of an animal companion.” Diana Williams Casey Animal rescue, animal welfare advocate, foster, Volunteer photographer for rescue groups , Houston, Texas
