Cute New Book for Kids - A Little Dachshund's Tale - Event Reading on March 16th, 11 AM at Book Culture on Broadway (114th)
I just finished reading "A Little Dachshund's Tale" to my two daughters for the 5th time in three days, so it's safe to assume this children's book by first time author April Jean will be a hit with the 3-4 year old set.
The story follows a sweet little Dachshund named Frances Peabody on her travels and adventures, from being chosen by the "woman with bells on her toes" at the pet shop even though she was a sick little pup to finally reuniting with her new owner and adjusting to NYC life after staying with her "Auntie" in the country (New England) for a short while.
The book breaks out Frances Peabody's adventures by chapter making for an easy read, especially with small children. I only wish it had more illustrations. My girls really loved hearing the story from the dog's perspective, especially when she met her owner at the pet store. Expect to see more of Frances' adventures in the near future.
In the meantime, April Jean will be reading from her debut book this coming Saturday at 11 am at Book Culture on Broadway, 2915 Broadway at 114th Street. If you are in the area, bring your kids up for a storytime and buy the book if you enjoy the tale.
