What Folks are Saying
“If you are a dog lover, The Everyday Adventures of Papa & Paws will warm your heart. If you have an impatient toddler in your life like me, it might be a hit-or-miss thing for you. However, I applaud the love and care that went into this book, and I’m glad my daughter enjoyed it.”
“My four year old loves this and so do I! A great little story about a little dog waiting her turn. Simple and sweet and makes us giggle each time we read it.”
“2 1/2 year old granddaughter asks me to read “Papa and Paws” every day, multiple times over and over in one sitting, she really loves this story and pictures.”
“I liked it, but it was too short! I don’t like to wait for my treats. Its hard to wait. Written by my 4 y/o grandson.”
“This book is a great way to introduce the idea of patience to children. My son is only 3 months old so he obviously doesn’t understand the story yet, but he still likes the pictures! Excited to continue reading it to him as he grows up.”
The Real-Life Story Behind the Book
Shortly after my wife and I met, Molly Paws made herself “my dog”. She makes sure to be in the same room with me wherever I’m at in the house and she listens to me really well. Molly also has a habit of talking. She will distinctly call out “Pa-Pa” and “I love you.” Sometimes when I go on a pizza run or get gas for the car, I will take Molly with me and I’ve always called them a “Papa Paws” adventure.
Every evening after dinner, Molly will stare at me until it’s time for me to give her an after-dinner treat. And if she feels I’m not paying enough attention to her, she will talk to me. Usually, she starts shortly after I’ve eaten my dinner. She does not do this with my wife. It’s only me. So when it came time to make the first book in The Everyday Adventures of Papa & Paws, this evening ritual seemed like a perfect starting point. Even though one of the first ideas for the series started with Gracie, I was not quite ready to tell her story. (Don’t worry, I did in Book 3, Brave Little Gracie).
