Children's Book Review: Our Dog Benji 

In keeping with the theme from the #LifeThisWeek link up, (thanks to Denyse for hosting!) I thought I'd feature the book, Our Dog Benji.
It is an adorable children's book that is released this month through Exisle Publishing.

Benji is an adventurous dog who is much loved by his owners. Like most dogs, he has an insatiable appetite and loves to eat all types of foods (and even things that aren't food!)
Benji's child owner isn't as daring when it comes to trying new foods, but over the course of the story, we discover how Benji's eagerness to eat anything from bones to bugs helps to encourage his young owner to try more foods. 
My youngest daughter and I read this story together and she loved Benji's antics. 
Our Dog Benji is written by Pete Carter and illustrated by James Henderson, (the duotone illustrations are wonderful and very detailed), and it is a great story for young readers. It retails for $19.99 and is available from 

Also, there's still a few more days to enter my Hippo Blue giveaway worth $75! here
