This is not just another book about a dog! Meet Punk, an eight-year-old petite English Bulldog. Her life appears great right now, but it wasn't always that way. Join Punk as she recounts her story of neglect, her rescue and recovery, and her journey of learning to trust and heal again. Punk's Plight is meant to help educators, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and allies of children teach children about the difficult topic of neglect. Punk teaches that neglect may change you forever, but it does not have to stop you from living your best life.
The Triumphant Tails of Rescue Dogs is a sweet story yet holds an emotional and significant message. Though told from the perspective of a sweet dog nicknamed Punk, the purpose of this story isn’t merely for entertainment.
This tender tale shares a story about an English Bulldog that was neglected by his original owners. Punk wasn’t cared for properly and developed skin and hair problems. He felt forgotten and sad. Even when he was taken to a rescue and recovery ranch, he found it difficult to trust his caretaker and other animals. But he was strong and worked hard to overcome his past, and eventually found a forever home where his new family was kind, understanding, and patient.
Through his gentle narration, Punk encourages young readers to seek help from a trusted adult if they, or someone they know is being neglected or mistreated as he was. Because, like him, they can become stronger and healthier in the right environment.
This book is for a reading age of 4-7. Due to the delicate subject matter, perhaps having a parent or other adult present might help younger or more sensitive readers understand the unfortunate realities that some pets and children face. Parents can also emphasize the importance of empathy and understanding for others.
