Gobi: A Little Dog with a Big Heart - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Tommy Nelson. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.


Book Overview:

Finding Gobi is the miraculous tale of New York Times bestselling author Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner who crosses paths with a scrappy, stray dog who ran 77 miles of the 155-mile race with him through the Gobi Desert.

My Review:

They say that dog is a man's best friend, and this picture book seems to prove just that.  Gobi: A Little Dog with a Big Heart is based on true events of a runner who forms a companionship with a dog when they meet during a race.

There are other Finding Gobi books available, but this one is for preschoolers.  This particular book has captivating illustrations and emphasizes true kindness and courage.  Gobi stays loyal to his newfound master and they both help each other with struggles throughout the race.  It is uplifting and encouraging.

Win It!

One person will win a Gobi: A Little Dog with a Big Heart children's book.
