Book Description

10 Oct 2012 Metro The Little Dog
When Sherry decides she wants a puppy, she finds Metro, a tiny, engaging puppy at the local animal shelter. It’s love at first sight for both of them, and when Sherry takes Metro home and introduces the playful puppy to Butterscotch, Sherry’s long-time cat, the three become a family. Metro helps plant a veggie garden, takes a walk at midnight, and even goes ballroom dancing! Metro Comes Home is the first in a series of beautifully illustrated children's books about Metro's fun-filled doggy adventures. These stories were written to honor the memory of a lovable little dog named Metro and all the wonderful dogs who grace our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming children's tale 1 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
American writer, Susie Slanina, has written a delightful tale based on a little dog, Metro. In this, the first book in a series, Metro joins her new family. Susie Slanina creates a charming tale...sweet, happy and interesting, with moral and ethical undertones. The short chapters are suited to the younger reader and the bedtime story reader :-)
Well worth the small investment and no doubt the following books in the series will achieve the same high standard,
All in all, an excellent little book

Metro Comes Home

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Children's Book 11 Oct 2012
By Dotty - Published on Amazon.com
I love how Metro Comes Home shares adventures with her little dog. Children can read and learn about taking care of pets as well as what pets give back to their owners. There are a lot of life long messages that can be taken form this book. This book is 100% safe for all children which as a parent I greatly appreciate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metro is a Star! 11 Oct 2012
By M&M - Published on Amazon.com
I LOVE Metro and your stories! As I told Susie, when I read the first book (in one sitting on a plane flight), I couldn't stop smiling the whole time! - thanks for finding the courage and inspiration to share Metro's stories with us all - you ROCK! hugs and love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-warming Story 11 Oct 2012
By karey - Published on Amazon.com
Susie Slanina has a writing style that is fresh and sparkly, with ways of interpreting her little dog's behavior that had the animal-lover in me saying "I never thought about it quite like that, but that's it exactly!" I would encourage all parents of young readers to offer this darling book to their children. In addition to helping children learn how precious our furry babies are, the story will very likely have a gentling effect on the heart and spirit of anyone who goes on this sweet journey with Metro and her forever mom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, fantastic message 11 Oct 2012
By Jeff Mays - Published on Amazon.com
Metro, the little dog, is a fantastic series of stories. These books offer children and adults a great insight to pet ownership through an entertaining story. The underlying messages of responsibility, for pets and the environment are important to every person, no matter what their age. This beautifully illustrated book is a "must read" for kids of any age! We all love Metro!

5.0 out of 5 stars My very own Metro 12 Oct 2012
By Deborah - Published on Amazon.com
I loved the story of Metro the little dog so much that I went out and adopted my very own little Metro from the Humane Society. And yes, I named him Metro! Susie's book has inspired me to create adventures with my own little bundle of love. Thank you Susie Slanina!
