RI Author Feature: Bedtime Story: Tuggie The Patriot Pup by Lauren E. Kelley

Synopsis: "Tuggie, the Colonial Yorkshire Terrier, makes his way from Yorkshire, England to Providence, Rhode Island.  He gets to witness and participate is some important events leading up to America's independence, becoming a patriot."
My Review: I picked up this book at the Rhode Island Authors Convention last year. It is a fun children's book filled with pictures and the story of many events leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, including the destruction of the HMS Gaspee. The story is told from a young pup's point of view so keeps kids interested in the story. It also includes a glossary and some facts about the events in the story. It is a little advanced for Munchkin but would be great for 1st grader age group.
My Rating: It is a great way to teach history using animals, it seems to be a little more captivating for young kids. This book can be read aloud or at a later time a young reader can read it to themselves. I give it a rating of Three Paws.
