Blueberry Bear- Children’s Book Review

Blueberry Bear is a wonderful children’s book about a dog who loves blueberries. When I first heard about this book I thought to myself, “This author must know I’m a dog lover with a blueberry farm.” But guess what? She didn’t know!

After the book arrived I sat down and read it and immediately fell in love with the cute dog and her antics but the real test wasn’t me. Would my grandchildren like it?

My three year old granddaughter came by and I asked her if she would like for me to read a book to her. She immediately snuggled up to me and was ready to read.

Before you watch the video of me reading the book to my granddaughter (and you need to watch it because not only is the book good, my granddaughter is a hoot!) let me tell you a little bit about the author and illustrator of the book.

The Author

Eileen was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and currently resides in Chandler, AZ. Eileen’s passion is her Blueberry Bear series; her compassion is animal welfare and supports rescue shelters. Eileen and her registered therapy dog Jamie are a proud therapy team and active with the Paws 2 Read Organization.

Eileen lives happily with her long-time companion, Dennis and her rescue menagerie. She is currently working on completing her Blueberry Bear adventure trilogy.

The Love of a Dog

I have always loved dogs. They are so loyal and trusting. Eileen’s dog, Jamie (aka Blueberry Bear) is wonderful with children and goes with Eileen frequently to libraries and other places where children gather to read.

Jamie is such a beautiful dog and she and Eileen are best buddies. I don’t think being famous has changed her a bit. She’s still the same humble, loving dog she was before Eileen wrote about her!

Now what are you waiting for? Visit Eileen’s website and order a copy to read to your grandchildren. Trust me, you’ll love it. My granddaughter and I did. We average reading it at least once a day. And there’s lots more great information on Eileen’s site that you will enjoy, so stop by and say hello and tell her I sent you!
