Review & Giveaway: God and Dog by Wendy Francisco

Title: God and Dog
Author: Wendy Francisco
Available: Now
Reading Level: Children of all ages
My rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Description from Goodreads:

GOD AND DOG is a phenomenon. First appearing on YouTube, the video of Wendy Francisco's charming animated illustrations and moving song tells of the unconditional love of both God and Dog.

With over 2 million YouTube viewings to date, Francisco's story appeals to all ages, to animal enthusiasts, to people of religious persuasions, and especially to anyone who has been loved by a dog.

Now in book format, Wendy's touching narrative will be expanded on through additional lyrics, illustrations, photographs and some of the powerful mail that is continually being sent to Francisco. 

My thoughts:

God and Dog is a little picture book with a big message. Taking the words god and dog, and showing how one can be reversed to spell the other. The emphasis is on how both God and your dog will be there when needed, even when they aren’t the main focus of our busy lives. Both show unconditional love and forgiveness. A very touching read, and one I hope to share with my children again and again. The illustrations are beautiful. My children were instantly drawn in by the adorable black and white pup on the cover. I’d recommend this one to dog lovers, and anyone looking for a little spiritual pick me up. This would make a great addition to any home or church library. 

Make sure you check out the YouTube video below to see the song that came before the book.
