13 Dec

Do you know any children that love dogs?  Are you excited to read to your child each night?  You’ll love JJ The American Street Dog and How He Came to Live in Our House and JJ Goes to Puppy Class.  

JJ the American Street Dog on Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad

Here’s a story about a little girl named Maya.  Maya has wanted a dog for as long as she can remember. Just when her parents decide to buy her one, her Uncle Jerry finds a homeless puppy that he can’t keep.

Although Mom is skeptical about keeping a dog from the street, she agrees to take in the pup and they name him JJ. Before long, JJ warms his way into their hearts, and Maya and her family learn about homeless animals and how they can be a part of the solution to end pet over-population.

This is the award winning story JJ The American Street Dog and How He Came to Live in Our House.


In fact, it’s rather similar to my real story of how we accidentally adopted our first dog JJ. I was set on getting a dog from a breeder. Twenty years ago animal rescue wasn’t as commonly known as it is now and I legitimately didn’t even know it was an option.

But our friend did in fact find a homeless puppy that he couldn’t keep and I was ultimately able (with my arms originally crossed just like the Mom in the book) to open my heart to this guy who needed a home. I learned a lot from that experience.

I love sharing this story with friends and especially children because kids naturally love animals and have really big hearts. When we nurture kindness in children we are opening their world to being compassionate toward all creatures, furry and human. In this day and age, we can all use some great tools that help raise our children into loving, caring and peaceful adults.


JJ The American Street Dog and How He Came to Live in Our House is the first in the JJ series. The sequel, JJ Goes to Puppy Class is available now too! Both books can be found on my website http://dianerosesolomon.com/ or on Amazon.com.
