Wooffer Childrens Book Review

Wooffer is​ a​ collection of​ thirty-three short animal-adventure children stories originally written by Betty Fasig for her family. the​ center character is​ Wooffer,​ a​ hairy dachshund puppy that "mom",​ the​ author,​ receives as​ a​ surprise Xmas gift from her fun-loving family.

A host of​ animals grace the​ pages of​ Wooffer,​ including Old Agnes the​ mouse,​ thoughtful and protective Margaret the​ hen,​ Marygrey the​ pregnant rabbit,​ a​ proud and endearing peacock named Cho Lee who loves to​ strut his stuff and falls in​ love with a​ quail,​ and best friends Ibie the​ Ibis and Maudie the​ horse.

The stories are thoughtfully placed in​ chronological order,​ right down to​ the​ season. it​ even includes a​ Xmas story! This is​ a​ book about a​ puppy that changes the​ opinions of​ those around him,​ wins hearts and becomes a​ reliable,​ heroic friend. Wooffer earns respect from all the​ animals for miles around and becomes a​ bit of​ a​ legend by the​ time he grows up.

Generally warm,​ fun and light-hearted,​ Wooffer also tackles real-life issues from moving,​ loneliness,​ gaining respect,​ discerning truth from what one is​ told,​ getting lost,​ overcoming bullies and more.

Having spent a​ few years on​ a​ farm in​ my youth,​ I see germs of​ truth in​ the​ animal relationships and can verify the​ strange and wonderful bonds that happen between species. the​ epilogue provides a​ nice closure by revealing how all the​ animals still return to​ the​ same area annually and spend time with Wooffer and his friends discussing the​ old times and having new adventures.

Inserted occasionally are several adorable amateur drawings of​ life and adventures on​ the​ farm that are sure to​ entertain children. the​ cover is​ a​ photograph of​ the​ inspiration for the​ main character – the​ author’s dog - which gives a​ more realistic feel to​ the​ book than a​ characterization or​ drawing could have done.

The book’s underlying theme is​ that no matter how small a​ person may think they are,​ or​ how small of​ a​ thing they may do – they can make a​ difference to​ the​ lives of​ those around them. And this is​ an​ encouraging thought.

Wooffer is​ an​ excellent book for bedtime stories,​ but will be best enjoyed when reading to​ groups of​ children. Written in​ such a​ way that the​ reader can easily characterize the​ animals and situations with their voice,​ the​ book is​ sure to​ bring giggles of​ joy to​ groups of​ children. as​ such,​ I think Wooffer would be an​ excellent addition to​ the​ bookshelves of​ libraries,​ schools,​ daycare centers and the​ like.
