Cole’s Perfect Puppy by Frances M. Crossno – Book Review

Cole’s Perfect Puppy



Cole’s Perfect Puppy introduces young readers everywhere to Cole, his younger brother Caleb and their new friend Rachel. When Cole meets the “perfect puppy” after a mad chase through the mall, he hopes for her arrival under the tree on Christmas morning. But alas, it’s not meant to be.

Instead, Cole embarks on an adventure to find a way to earn enough money, and get permission, to bring the golden retriever puppy home–learning a few life lessons along the way.

From learning how to be thankful for the gift of his first “pet”, the pot-bellied pig Dandy Danny, to the merits of hard work and the true meaning of the power of prayer, Cole’s journey isn’t without a few hiccups.

Cole’s Perfect Puppy is the first in a series of Christian novels for young readers 7-12.

Book Review:

I have always loved reading children’s book. I feel as if I have travelled back to my childhood days whenever I do so. I love the cuteness, the innocence and simple story telling techniques of these books.

Cole’s Perfect Puppy is intended for young readers of the age 7 to 12 and is first in a series of Christian novels. The very first thing that grabbed my attention was the beautiful cover of the book. I loved the cute and colourful cover that inspired me to pick the book. The story is also very cute and interesting that intrigues the reader from the very beginning. I really enjoyed the adventurous journey of Cole and loved all the characters including the ones he meets, helps, and interacts with, along the way of getting a puppy for himself.

Cole’s Perfect Puppy also guides children through some of life’s great lessons on kindness, friendship, sacrifice, caring and above all true meaning of God’s perfect love. It also teaches about being positive in tough situations. The author has done a wonderful job in teaching these lessons to children in the most simple and entertaining way.

The language of the book is simple and easy to follow. The characters are lovable and the plot, interesting. All in all Cole’s Perfect Puppy is a cute, warm, interesting kids’ book that is not only refreshing and enjoyable but also teaches a few life lessons without being preachy.

A delightful and refreshing read recommend for young readers who love to read adventurous books.

I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange of an honest and unbiased review.
