Stella: The Dog with the Big Heart by Thea Feldman -- ADVISABLE

Feldman, Thea Stella: The Dog with the Big Heart, illustrated by Chris Danger. EARLY READER. NONFICTION. Simon Spotlight (Simon & Schuster), 2015. $3.99. Content: G.

This is the true story of Stella, a therapy dog who frequently visits sick and elderly people, providing love, encouragement, and joy each time. Stella's story is definitely a heart-warming one, and would be especially interesting for students who have an interest in dogs, medicine, or charitable work. As far as read-alouds go the writing isn't super dynamic and voicey, but it does make a good leveled reader or research source.
