As Good As Gold is a lovely, charming collection of thirty-five poems which are written through the eyes of a puppy. I was impressed with the level of imagination Patricia Furstenberg showed in her beautiful writing. It was a sheer pleasure to sit with a four-year-old and see the signs of wonder and recognition on his face. The poems are grouped into Questions, Colours, Musings, and Haiku. They promote conversation with children concerning wildlife, weather and the colours of nature. I think the book would be a great teaching aid in schools and the poems will be adored by dog lovers big and small!
Thank you to the author who supplied a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
“There is something truly magical about this wonderful collection. Having read each poem, I love how every word celebrates our canine companions from the tip of their wet noses to the wag of their tails.” (Susan Day, Editor and Author)
“A super sweet and poignant book of poetry about what a pup thinks of his world. As a cat lover I especially was tickled by his relationship to the cat. Any dog lover would adore this book. The photos were appealing. Haikus at the end were tiny diamonds.” (Kathryn Meyer Griffith, long time author)
