As if reading wasn’t hard enough already! After a scary start for Phoebe and the dog, she not only learns empathy but gains confidence and finds joy in her reading as well.

From the Author
As a children’s author, I’m always looking for inspirational true stories to write about. Boo Loves Books is based on a news article about a Book Buddies program where primary school students read to homeless cats at the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Pennsylvania. What captured my attention was the transformation of a boy who took part in the program.
