July 27, 2020


Disclosure: I received a copy of the book for review purposes only. All opinions are my own.

We always loved cuddling up for story time when my children were younger, whether we read to them, or they read to us. It was such a nice time! They are a little older now and prefer reading in their own space, but it is still very much encouraged.

We all know how important reading is for our children and starting them young is best and since all children love animals, Miss Olive, an Italian Greyhound rescue is the perfect subject for younger children. Author Susan Marie shares this adorable read highlighting kindness with an anti-bullying message, to show us how making an effort to be kind is how we make lasting friendships. Read on to learn more and enter to win a copy.

This cute and colorful story has Miss Olive learning that when faced with bullying, her superpower is kindness, and that it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. It’s the kindness and love you have on the inside that counts the most.
“Children relate to this story because sometimes it’s hard to make friends,” said author Susan Marie. “We’ve all had that experience growing up when we were in a new environment and someone made us feel left out. Through Miss Olive, kids learn that bullying is not okay and, also, a little kindness goes a long way in our path to making cherished forever friends.”
Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends is the second installment in the Miss Olive children’s book trilogy The Doggy Diva Diaries and continues the story of a little Italian Greyhound with three legs who is adopted by a loving family in the award-winning first book in the series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home.

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, continues the rescue dog’s adventures with the adored pup celebrating her birthday and finding loving, supportive “furever” friends in the process. A great and inspiring story, just in time for back to school!

About Miss Olive:

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home and Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends are the first and second books (respectively) in a trilogy about the adventures of Miss Olive, an Italian Greyhound rescue. The real Miss Olive was adopted in 2015 by author Susan Marie from Italian Greyhound Rescue Gulf Coast. Miss Olive was a victim of neglect and health issues, having lost her teeth due to lack of medical attention and one of her legs to cancer. The neglect and illness that she experienced has never affected her loving, gentle spirit; she is always ready for a snuggle. Miss Olive joins Susan Marie at the microphone each week as the co-host of radio show The Doggy Diva Show on Pet Life Radio to share important health and lifestyle information for pets and pet parents!.
