Brave Little Gracie (The Everyday Adventures of Papa and Paws) by Papa Paws introduces a dog named Gracie. She was a tiny Yorkie who overcame the challenges in her life and never let them stop her or prevent her from showing abundant love. Gracie was born into an uncaring home, yet refused to let her dark surroundings dim her brilliant light. The story recalls her passion for life and Mama's love for her. Gracie lived with Mama's other dog Mia and they formed an unbreakable friendship. For such a small dog, Gracie was an achiever, refusing to let her size and past extinguish her love of life! This quickly included her relationship with Mama and Mia, presenting young readers with a beautiful tale of hope and love.

This touching story tells a different side of Molly's adventures. In Brave Little Gracie, Papa Paws focused on Mama and her dogs Mia and Gracie before he was a part of their story. The beautiful illustrations brought this story to life in a realistic fashion that will appeal to all ages. The images where the words are part of the picture were also a nice touch, making the story more interactive and adding to the visual appeal. Gracie's tale is one many pet owners will appreciate, and I found myself falling for Gracie. I was so glad to discover that she found a loving home. I also liked how the narration is told in Mama's voice as she recounts Gracie's exploits to Molly and her sisters. Gracie sounds like such a sweet and brave dog. This is an inspirational story and a lovely addition to the Papa and Paws books.
