The Everyday Adventures of Papa & Paws


Worth reading 😎

I enjoyed it more from my child's perspective. It was cute and heart warming.

As an adult, I finished The Everyday Adventures of Papa & Paws by Papa Paws, and thought, "that's it?"

But I saw the story in a unique light when I read it to my 4-year-old daughter. She sat quietly, which is rare, and listened and watched the story unfold in front of her. I have some theories about why.

To start with, we recently had to say goodbye to our dog. So, stories about dogs really hit a chord with her right now. After the story she asked me why the dog talked and why did she call the adults "mama" and "papa." I explained that for some people a dog is part of the family. I used our dog as an example. She is still trying to grasp why our dog is buried in the yard. I feel this story reminded her of our dog in a positive light, and I appreciated the opportunity to reminiscence and remind her that dogs are special animals and it was okay to miss our deceased pet.

I will say that the artwork for the book was lovely to look at. It was warm and inviting. The dog was sufficiently cute, and I enjoyed the pages while we "waited" with Molly Paws. I thought the lesson of the book applied to my daughter's life experience up to this point. I appreciated the positive example I can now refer to when she is impatiently waiting for me to snap to some task. The story really is a cute idea, and it's simple and direct.

If you are a dog lover, The Everyday Adventures of Papa & Paws will warm your heart. If you have an impatient toddler in your life like me, it might be a hit-or-miss thing for you. However, I applaud the love and care that went into this book, and I'm glad my daughter enjoyed it.
