Sheli Leviabout this book: The newly released Book 3 in the "Homestead Friends" Children's series is titled "Trapper Loves His Daddy!" It is a true story about how Trapper, a young pup, follows his daddy, Big Bo, an English Shepherd, everywhere! Trapper's mom is Leaping Leah, who is an Australian Cattle dog, also known as a Blue Heeler. Leaping Leah is the most active dog on the homestead an incapable of being still (unless she is asleep!) Conversely, Big Bo is large, lanky, laid back, likes to take long naps in the sunshine, and enjoys eating. Trapper enjoys playing 'catch the stick' with his mom Leaping Leah but just about every other minute is spent with his dad. At most anytime of the day you can find Trapper following Big Bo as if he was his shadow. One of the sweetest sights is to see Big Bo curled up for a nap and Trapper nuzzled up right next to him.
Join us for this sweet story as a young pup adores his daddy! Wonderfully illustrated in watercolor featuring all the homestead friends and the beautiful scenery deep in the Ozark Mountains.
Reviews on Homestead Friends Books 1 and 2 include:
What a delightfully sweet read! Even though our girls are older, they still loved this wholesome, kindhearted book. Before you finish the first page you will fall in love with Harley, the adorable kitten of the Ozark Mountains.
The colors in the illustrations are bright and cheerful drawing you right into this Homestead life. Each animal is artfully described and illustrated; allowing great fun for even the youngest readers as they begin to identify the characters. Older readers will notice how each character builds upon the life and surroundings of wooded homestead life.
This would be a wonderful addition to anyone's collection, especially those who share homestead and/or Ozark dreams, or memories. It would be a fantastic unit study, or Five in a Row lesson for homeschooling or classroom use.
The Homestead Friends series has become our new family favorite! These will be treasured classics that go from night stand to the hope chest.
We loved how the new story of Leaping Leah and her adorable additions began with the connection to sweet Harley. Just like real life on a homestead, each animal becomes a part of a unified family. We also enjoyed how handsome Texas, the orange cat, was given part of the spot light as he told about his friend Leah. And don't forget Big Bo---the proud papa!
This is a wonderful tale of the adventures of new life on a homestead; the cherished memories, and the excitement and wonder of the future.
The illustrations are AMAZING!! They sweetness of the animals comes right through the pages. The reader gets a beautiful tour of the land as they enjoy the energetic journey of Leah through the homestead. Our children love the pictures so much they immediately grabbed their art supplies to make their own copies!
