What Folks are Saying
“Molly is a favorite with my granddaughter. She is asking for more Molly books to be read to her. I will be checking out the other books that are available.”
“This book got a thumbs up from my picky grandson and one from me as well.”
“…My grandson just turned four yesterday and we read everyday. This started when he was born and has continued on from there. Now that he is getting older books that he can learn something from are high on my list. This sweet little book is all about patience and is perfect for a little one who is growing up fast. Molly the dog wants her treat but she has to learn to wait her turn. My grandson loved how in each illustration he could tell Molly’s mood just by subtle differences in her eyes and ears, which is a testament to how even as simple as the illustrations are they are also very well done. The story though simple as well was perfect and I think we will need to get some more of the books from this author soon. This book got a thumbs up from my picky grandson and one from me as well.”
“We received this super cute book for free and I am voluntarily leaving this review. This book is absolutely adorable! It is perfect for teaching kids how to wait. My six year old daughter loved the dog and said that it was just like her with waiting for her dinner. She loved the pictures and it was a great book for her to read to me.”
“My 4 and 6 year olds loved this book. The pictures are so cute. They especially love Molly’s heart shaped nose.”
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).
