Family Story Time with New A Dog’s Purpose Books

story time

Forge Books sent me the newest W. Bruce Cameron books and is partnering with me for a giveaway!

Feel-Good Family StorY time

Family story time is all about feeling good, like how we all feel after reading a Dog’s Purpose book or two! Since the publication of W. Bruce Cameron’s A Dog’s Purpose almost a decade ago, Bailey’s inspirational adventures have earned praise from the likes of Alice Walker (“amazing…wise”) and Temple Grandin (“I could not put it down”). These books have also earned love and praise from my and my family! We love these stories and can’t get enough to both the books as well as the movies that are based on them!

The Newest Books from W. Bruce Cameron

Published just a week apart, A Dog’s Promise and Lily’s Story: A Puppy Tale, are two fantastic new books that the whole family can enjoy together! These captivating novels by W. Bruce Cameron are all about what it really means to be a good dog, and the lengths people will go to help others.

As a proud dog owner for many years, I can totally support and understand this. Dog’s are truly man’s best friend and they prove it to us over and over again! We loved our Jack and Jill and love our Tucker now!! I love the W. Bruce Cameron recognizes this and really shows the heart, soul, and love of our four legged family members!

W. Bruce Cameron

W. Bruce Cameron is the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose book, A Dog’s Way Home, and A Dog’s Journey (all now major motion pictures), The Dog Master, the A Dog’s Purpose Puppy Tales for young readers (starting with Ellie’s Storyand Bailey’s Story), The Dogs of Christmas, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, and others. He’s just a great story teller and one that I cannot endorse enough for almost everyone in your family that just loves to read good stories for story time and feel great when the book is done!

A Dog’s Purpose has inspired two hit movies, the spinoff “Puppy Tales” children’s series, and a New York Times bestselling sequel. We absolutely love these movies, too! They are just so sweet and so good. You can’t help but tear up so many times. But they are wonderful and joyful movies in the end. Just what families need to see and be a part of today.
