Meet Lucy the Wonder Weenie

Lucy the Wonder Weenie written by Nina Clark and illustrated by Sara Pulver.
Lucy the Wonder Weenie is written by Nina Clark and illustrated by Sara Pulver. It's a 32 page paperback available for purchase at Amazon. I found Lucy the Wonder Weenie to be one adorable diva dog. The art is pure whimsy. Plus who doesn't love a snappy dressed dog in a cape in heels? The story is equally as clever and whimsical. Lucy the Wonder Weenie manages to turn what her family doesn't love about her (her constant licking) into her strength. So kids learn a groovy message and that dog licks are really like kisses. Lucy is one fab pooch and I look forward to her future adventures. Viva Lucy! 5 stars

Mama Loves: Kisses

One of mama's favorite things is how Baby Whimsy kisses her stuffed animals now. 
Kisses rock. Isn't her owl cute? His name is Hootie. 
I hope I'm not the only gal that names her child's plush toys.
