Buddy's Tail by K. Anne Russell is a heart warming story of the world from a dog's point of view. The world of man's best friend is full of highs and lows as with their human counter parts.
This book is for an older child (9 or older). The story may be too intense for young children. The story, although told from a dog's perspective, deals with some very real human issues. It deals with loss, abuse, and the afterlife. Younger children may not understand the concept of the dog "haven", a dog's paradise or have the ability to deal with some of the sad parts of the story.
The book is smartly written. I think it is a great learning tool to share with your child. Although the book is for children, adults will find it enjoyable. The book shows kids about friendship and love. I think it is a must read for any child who owns a pet or thinking of getting a pet. I give this book 4 stars.
