Roxie the Doxie Finds Her Forever Home by Jody A. Dean is an excellent children’s book. Beautifully illustrated. The images are bright and colorful. They go well with the story. Page after page,mI followed a dog named Roxie. She’s a Doxie. It turns out she’s a real dog too. This is her story on adoption. Being in a foster home and going to a forever family. The intention of this book was to make adoption seem less frightening for children going through the process. I agree that the book has indeed accomplished that. Plus, there’s more materials in the back for parents of adopted kids. Great read. Fascinating adventure. Cute and friendly. I recommend this tale to readers everywhere.
