Review # 129: Lucky by Craig S. Inglis

     A very happy man wakes up one morning to discover that something is missing in his life, so he decides to get a dog to keep him company. He names the pup Lucky and they are very happy to spend time with each other, but one day Lucky runs into the road and is hit by a car. He is hurt badly, but the doctors manage to save him - minus one leg. Lucky must overcome great obstacles to walk and do tricks like he used to, but the man is always by his side and loves him even though he's now disabled. 

     I am pleasantly surprised by Lucky and the positive messages it passes to children. Besides the bright, colorful, and creative illustrations by Richard Kinsey, the book's emphasis on animal care, accidents, veterinarians, and disabilities make this a wonderful teaching aide for kids ages two to seven. The reading level is elementary, besides a few challenging multi-syllable words, and length is perfect at around thirty-two pages, (about fifteen to thirty words per page- not counting the cute illustrations). Recommended to younger children and the people that read to them!

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

*** I received this book from the author (Bostick Communications) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
