Meet my new friend, MAX:
He is furry, friendly and very smart. He is an ENGLISH LABRADOR! He is the first DOG AUTHOR I’ve ever “met”!
Max is stopping by here at Multi-Testing Mommy today on his very own Blog Book Tour!
When I found out about this wonderful opportunity, to have Max, the DOG AUTHOR, stop by my blog, I was very excited. What made me most excited was the ability to help Max promote his chosen charity, Leader Dogs for the Blind! I have always had a special little place in my heart for Leader Dogs. I think that they are the most special, incredible animals ever.
I think it also has to do with the fact that I’ve struggled with vision all of my life too. When I was in Grade One, I went to Sick Children’s Hospital where they decided that it was best that I wear a patch on my dominant eye. I spent the majority of my time walking around hardly able to see and I remember fantasizing what it would be like to have a Leader Dog to help me.
I wanted to introduce you to Max’s books:
Dogs Work Too! From Max’s Point of View (February 2011)
Color With Max Activity And Coloring Book
Dogs Move Too! From Max’s Point of View
When you purchase one of Max’s books, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Leader Dogs for the Blind, an organization that strives to enhance the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired.
I’ve had the privilege to read Dogs Move Too! From Max’s Point of View, a story about moving homes that is written from Max’s perspective. Max understands the confusion and the various emotions that a child goes through during a move. He shares all of this throughout his book in an empathetic way. I think that because Max is an animal, this book comes from a very unique angle and would reach many children in a way that some books might not.
Max’s video titled “Read With Max! Childrens Book “Dogs Work Too!” A Story About Leader Dogs for the Blind” has been selected to compete in the 2011 Peoples Telly Award. This competition is conducted online at the Official Telly Awards YouTube website. Voting starts Monday March 28th and continues for 4 weeks. PLEASE watch the video below and click here to vote!
