Not Afraid of Dogs

My picture book pick for May, Not Afraid Of Dogs has been reviewed by Didgeridoo Dogs

"A site about Australian shepherds and other K-9s"

Posted by jteitelman, the review has a common sense note, plot summary, and some of the text from inside the book.

Not Afraid of Dogs won the Society of Children's Book Writer's Golden Kite Awards for 2006, and is such a great book you cannot read about the plot and not want to read it.

Written by Susanna Pitzer and illustrated by Larry Day, Not Afraid of Dogs, is a story that had to be told, and will not go unnoticed.

I had trouble finding a copy it is so popular, and since I have to really "live" in a book awhile, before writing a review, I am delighted this site noticed the title.

Parents and dog lovers alike need to stop by Didgerdoo Dogs blog to read this review, and see what else this new blog has to offer!

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
