“Children’s Letters to Dog” is a funny, heart warming collection of letters and drawings by elementary school students to dogs at the Humane Society of Broward County. It’s available now everywhere books are sold.
I developed the concept and partnered with photographer/photojournalist Stacey Brandon to create the book. We enlisted the help of elementary school students at North Broward Preparatory School. The kids were free to write about anything on their minds—and that’s exactly what they did. Some wrote about their favorite things like pizza, hot dogs and Captain Underpants. While others wrote about their most unfavorite things like sisters, allergies and haircuts. But one thing they all did was remind us that life is more fun with a vivid imagination and a four-legged friend to share it with.
