Tanner, a Great Pyrenees puppy, was fortunate enough to be adopted at four months of age, when he came to live with Mama, Susanna, and two cats. He tells all about his experiences—the mischief, the adventures, and the love he’s found with his new family. In this delightfully illustrated and interactive book, Tanner encourages young readers to use the blank pages to draw pictures or share their own feelings about adoption—it’s a warm, nonthreatening place for children to express their emotions, and Tanner is an adorable mascot.

As I have said before my kids love to be read to. So we get excited every time we get a new book in the mail :) Tell Tanner Tales arrived in our mailbox and my oldest wanted to read it right away. We sat down and began to enjoy our new book. :)
I love the premise of this book! My husband and I have always talked about possibly adopting in the future, so it was great to see a children's book based around the greatness that is adoption. My only complaint about this book is it is very wordy! My son loves books, we will often sit down and read 2 or more at a time, but this book was a little hard for us to get through in one sitting. I think for older kids it might be fine, but for my 4 yr old it was just a little too long.
However, if you know of a family that has adopted a child or if you yourself have been blessed to be able to adopt, this book is a cute little story to share! You can purchase this book at http://www.amazon.com/ or http://barnesandnoble.com/. One of you can win a copy of this book, just by filling out the entry form below. I will leave this open until Thursday July 5th. Good Luck!!!
