- I read “A New Home for Dominick” to my class at the end of the day yesterday and they all loved it so much, wanting all day today to look at the pictures on their free time! This book was a homerun! Thank you! – Laura Yokum. Teaching Assistant, Whitesboro Central School District, NY
- I bought this book to share with kindergarten age children as I am a teacher’s aide for that grade. The book is well written and the illustrations are endearing. I’ve read it to two different classes and both groups loved it. They enjoyed the story and had many comments about their favorite parts and questions about the two animals. The facts about the horse rescue at the end of the story were interesting too. I plan on reading this book to my students year after year. Glad to hear there will be a sequel. – Debbie M, Amazon reviewer
