AWARENESS TOUR: The True Story of Nick the Firedog by Timothy Dexter, Jr. - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to another double dose of Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

What can I say? I'm a book lover, reader, and collector, so when titles come my way that I can't pass up, I tend to say yes...and yes...and, yeah; I think you get the picture. There are times I have to turn something away because quite frankly, I'm not a robot, and there are only so many hours in a day, but those titles that made an impression never get THAT far away (can we say never-ending wish list?). Anywho...

Today's blog tour guest via The Children's Book Review is not one of those titles that temporarily got least from me READING it because it TOTALLY ran away with my heart! Let's get to know a wonderful fur baby that had a rough start, in life, but turned his frown (and story!) upside down. Ladies and gents, kiddos and fur baby's alike, ring the bell and sound the alarm as we make way for...

About the book...
The True story of “Nick the Firedog” is a true story about a pit bull puppy that was left abandoned and tied to a fire hydrant a block away from the firehouse. The puppy was rescued by the local firefighters where he quickly became a permanent fixture at the firehouse and a local celebrity. He goes on calls, teaches fire prevention, and even has his own fire coat.

What started as the worst day of a young pup's life, turned into a day that could be looked back upon fondly because that's the day his life truly began.  You see, Nick's owner couldn't care for him, and made a tough decision.  What happened next was part luck, part destiny, and all heart.  Thanks to the kindness of a few firemen, and the friendliness of the young pup, his life went from unknown destination to inspiration.  He would go on to know love in new ways, share love with those around him, and pass on safety messages that kiddos could easily relate to because he was just that brilliant...and his adorableness didn't hurt his chances of the lessons sticking in the least.

I admit, I definitely had the glimmer of tears in my eyes when I reached Nick's moment of reflection.  Aside from the fire safety messages already imparted, it was a lovely way to remind readers that it's truly all in how you look at it.  The best or worst situation could be one in the same depending on the eyes and HEART through which it was viewed.  All the better to approach all things, people, and situations with kindness.  It costs us nothing and yet goes so very far.

A charming tale for readers of all ages with colorful images that will inspire and delight.
