Breaking Free from the Leash: a Dog's Dream(January 28, 2014)
Williamsport, PA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
In the average American household, pets are considered just another part of the family. Many would claim a scary similarity between the four-legged friends and their human counterparts.
In Anna B. Moyers new childrens book, Her Name is Sophia, Moyer illustrates how mans best friend can have the same love of travel as their owner.
With inspiration from her own furry friend and illustrations by her oldest grandson, Christopher, she tells the story of a dogs yearning to leave the confined space of a cage and explore the world.
Moyer, a former teacher, wrote this book for young children to get excited about reading again and leave their video games and TV shows behind.
Children today do not read, she said. There are too many distractions.
In the book, Sophias owners installed an invisible fence to keep her from running away. Moyer thinks this is a metaphor for humans as well.
She said the invisible fence was one way to try to fix a problem, but still, dogs and people sometimes wont change.
