2021 - Book #19 - Champ and Major First Dogs; Joy McCullough

 

Champ and Major: First Dogs, Joy McCullough (Ill.Sheyda Abvabi Best) 
Dial Books / Random House 2021

Champ and Major: First Dogs, has something import to tell readers -   their human dad has an important job as the new President of the United States.  Champ had visited the White House when dad was Vice President. At that time Champ used to play with Sunny and Bo, the Obama's dogs.  Major was adopted in 2018 after the Biden's fostered him and then adopted him from a Delaware shelter. Major is the only shelter dog to ever live in the White House.  As Champ teaches Major the ropes: greeting visitors and showing him the good places to sleep, when dad is done working they look forward to playing with him outdoors.  Presidents love animals it seems, did you know that only (2) former Presidents never had a pet living at the White House? 

This is a beautifully illustrated fun and informative book for young readers. My grandchildren love animals so when I heard about this book, I had to order it; I wasn't disappointed and neither were they - not just for kids. 



RATING - 5/5 stars

    2. Oh wow, I didn't see read that. I will check it out. Of course a cat will need its own book as cats don't take a backseat for any critter or human LOL

  4. They wasted no time to get that book out. I believe he has a cat now though. That will probably be a separate book! You know cats. They don't want to share the spotlight. I love the illustrations.
