Sashi is Back for a Third Time!
Sashi is back for a third time! I initially wrote about the first book in the Sashi Series entitled, Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie!, here; and I also wrote about the second book, Sashi Adopts a Brother, a continuation on the Sashi Series, here. The author, Linda Greiner, recently contacted me and sent me her third book with illustrator, Morgan Spicer, entitled, Sashi and the Puppy Mill Girl, a continuation in the Sashi Series, which is now available for purchase! A portion of the sales are donated to help Shetland Sheepdogs in the New Jersey area.
As those who have been reading the blog know, we love shelties and we are strong proponents of dog rescue and dog fostering — and all of the books in the Sashi series speak to these important issues. This newest book, in the Sashi Series, introduces the story of Cinnamon, puppy mill dog who becomes a foster dog — and you will have to read the book to find out the ending to Cinnamon’s story! So if you are looking for a fun children’s book to teach about the positive implications of dog rescue and dog fostering, I highly recommend this book and the other books in the Sashi Series. And, if you love shelties you will for sure love this book! The illustrations are vivid and beautiful, which brings this true story to life. (All of the books in the Sashi Series are based on true stories).
Below is an excerpt from the author about Sashi and the Puppy Mill Girl:
“Anna and her mother love fostering Shelties through Shetland Sheepdog Rescue. By taking care of rescued dogs, they help the dogs become ready to find a forever home. They’ve already adopted two Shelties of their own, Sashi and Buddy, and their newest foster is a shy girl named Cinnamon who’s been rescued from a puppy mill. Neglected and frightened, Cinnamon has a tough time settling into her new home at first but with help from Sashi and Buddy, Cinnamon realizes she doesn’t have to be afraid. Now loved and cared for, Cinnamon learns to be happy and playful again and soon finds her forever home. Based on the true story of Cinnamon, this tale addresses the reality of puppy mills while keeping the story light, warm, and accessible to young readers.”
