Barney the Farm Dog: A True Story by Mary Lynn Swiderski Review
Barney the Farm Dog is a true story about a Saint Bernard. Read about this dog’s life on the Brewer farm with Farmer Vic. Barney’s funny antics and protective nature are heartwarming and humorous. All the illustrations are true pictures of life on the farm.
Mary Lynn Swiderski has worked with children for twenty-five years as a 4-H educator and health and nutrition educator with Michigan State University Extension. She retired in June, 2014. She has degrees in journalism and family life education. She has always loved creative writing, poetry, books, and music. This is her first children’s book as told to her by her husband, Victor, prior to his death. She was born, raised, and continues to live in Saint Ignace, a small, quaint city located just north of the historic Mackinac Bridge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- A very short children's books. Barney is a great farm dog and stayed loyal to his farm and family. The story has a bit of a sad twist, but partial proceeds go to the Michigan multiple sclerosis society.
