Seeing Through The Eyes of a Shelter Dog by Malinda Mitchell is a cute little book that conveys a beautiful message to readers. The story revolves around our furry friends and teaches readers to look at the world through the eyes of others and that also includes animals. The author speaks about Cotton, her seven-month-old adopted puppy, and how it would have felt when he saw her for the very first time. The book motivates readers to adopt these furry animals. The author also says there is a telepathic vibe when you see the pet that is meant for you.


Dedicated to all abandoned and abused animals, this book will definitely strike a chord in the minds of readers. The pictures of Cotton will make readers connect with the story and the pup better. The book, written from Cotton's view point, is adorable. He speaks about his new home and tells readers about his comfortable and precious life in his adopted home. The author's narration is simple and elegant and it makes us look at these furry friends in a new and unique light. I found the words ‘fur baby’ cute too, like Cotton. It is a perfect book to be read out to kids in classrooms and libraries and also as a bedtime story book. It makes kids more compassionate and caring towards animals. The book takes a peek into the mind of this ‘fur baby’ and his thoughts and feelings.
