    Gobi A Little Dog with a Big Heart is an adorable picture book based on a true story The author did a great job of making the story and illustrations pleasing to young children There is also a book for older children called Finding Gobi Young Reader's Edition Dion Leonard is running a 177 mile race of the Gobi Desert He meets this little dog partway through the race and realizes that he is running with him He names him Gobi after the desert They complete the journey together with some trials and tribulations When the race ends Dion adopts Gobi and takes him home to Scotland to be part of the family with his wife and cat I loved the illustrations in this book They are large colourful and fun They will certainly hold the young child's attention This book shows the plight of abandoned animals in a positive way Everyone cannot adopt an abandoned animal from somewhere else in the world but they can do it in their own communities from their local shelters The book also stresses perseverance and fulfilling your promises A great story for a family library primary classroom schools or public libraries The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via NetgalleyThis is one of those stories adults will love reading to kids because it’s so positive and upbeat with a real world happy ending

    Oh my Gobi by Dion Leonard has got to be the cutest book I have ever read I have heard of it before but if I had known it was this lovely I would have read it much sooner Growing up I always wanted a dog that looked just like Gobi to go on adventures with Honestly I still consider adopting every dog that looks like him This story was nicely written to be understood by little kids and the illustrations are absolutely lovely I can't wait to read Gobi and Dion's other story as well

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley Opinions expressed in this review are completely my ownThis book along with its amazing pictures and illustrations brought me to tears I have never read a heartwarming story since Marley and Me and how a stray dog attended a race and found a racer named Dion and grew this bond like it was meant to be No matter how hard it got Gobi stayed with Dion through the entire race and win or loose they became friends for life Recently I lost my dog and reading this story reminded me of how special our bond was and even with the most difficult times he still stood by my side and never left me I know children will be inspired by this book and I definitely know that the elementary school teachers will fall in love with this bookWe will consider adding this title to our Picture Book collection at our library That is why we give this book 5 stars

    This bright colorful and interesting children's picture book is based of the real life story and experiences of Dion Leonard and a little stray dog named Gobi The story is told in detail in a middle school reader's book For youngsters and young at heart the story embraces adoption and it's beauty and need in society on many levelsThe illustrations picturing little Gobi the doggy are simply charming and make one wish to cuddle that little critter themselves And the story begins with this little dog in the desert China's Gobi Desert and he hears a noise Curious he investigates and sees people running Like any decent little doggy he decides to run along with them And he now has friendsDion shares his water pets the little doggy and finally bestows him with a name Gobi after the tough desert they are running across And when the going got really tough Dion made certain Gobi wasn't left behindThis is a sweet story of how a caring person adopts and cares for a dog and one I can recommend because it is a good story and also because it involves a real life experienceAn unbreakable bond was forged as the scruffy dog ran alongside Dion for 77 miles of a race across the Gobi Desert in extreme temperatures over sand dunes through fast running rivers and finally to cross the finish line together Families will enjoy reading this tail wagging tale again and againDISCLOSURE I received a complimentary copy from the BookLook Reviewers program to facilitate a review Opinions are my own alone and freely given
