Muffy & Valor: A True Story by Karl Beckstrand
Muffy & Valor: A True Story beautifully presented. It is a heartwarming story about compassionate, and courageous animals.
It is the authors 19th book about his own wary dog, Muffy. She had been bitten in the past and didn’t like other dogs. Valor, a lost German shepherd, had been hit by a car. How would Muff react to us bringing an unknown, injured dog into the house?
This touching picture book teaches compassion, friendship, trust, and courage. It includes a fun finding activity, and was written in dyslexic-friendly font.
