Buddy Unchained

Title: Buddy Unchained
Author: Daisy Bix
ISBN: 9780940719019

Classification: Fiction with realistic story
Themes: animal welfare, feelings

What's it about?
This story is about a cute dog that has been treated poorly. His life takes a turn for the better when he is rescued by a local organisation and learns to trust, love and be part of a family.

Embrace
The simplicity of the text. This book features simple sentences and keeps them to a minimum to tell the story. The text is well supported by the illustrations and are not too scary for younger children.

Beware
Animal neglect can be a confronting topic for some children and you will need to be prepared for the emotions some children will feel when they see Buddy at the beginning of the story

My Recommendation...

Buy It
This is a powerful story to include as part of an animal welfare unit. It tells Buddy's story very sensitively that you can use it with younger children without giving them nightmares. I had struggled to find the "perfect" book to use with this topic but now I have one.
