Talking Animals Have Something To Say!

5.0 out of 5 stars BentleyCover, January 23, 2015
Flo Barnett (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog (Kindle Edition)
Bentley, the English bulldog, is exactly what his name suggests, a bully! However, when rescued by Mary, Charlene the Star’s trainer, he learns that his behavior is unacceptable and decides to make some very important changes. After several missteps, Bentley becomes friends with not only Charlene but Elliott and Hattie, the bonnet-wearing chicken as well.

You might be inclined to question what young children can learn from talking animals who do extraordinary things. Learning to deal with both winning and losing, being true to who you are, using the talents one has to the best of your ability, and engaging in worthwhile causes for the good of others are only four valuable lessons Ms. Dunne teaches in yet another Charlene the Star adventure. Her unique way of having animals present real life situations and how they deal with coming up with positive solutions is entertaining and believable. Dunne’s latest tale certainly can be utilized by parents and teachers alike. Great read!

  1. I love books about talking animals, they’re always the best protagonists! 🙂

    • Lily, I think you’d love my books then. Four of them center around the talking animals; Charlie the Horse, Charlene the Star, Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog. They all have important things to share and adorable illustrations, too. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

  2. Adorable stories that will delight middle grade kids with life lessons. Congrats for the 5-star reviews!

  3. Thank you so much, Janice! I’m so blessed to have you as my friend!
