Chihuahuas Like Cheese by Mrs Janice Wills Kingsbury is the story of Bogie, the Chihuahua who comes from a shelter in North Carolina as a stray. He is not the typical Chihuahua and tries to act like the big dogs. Bogie is a friendly dog and he seems to copy his pack mates, who are shelties and a Border Collie. He goes hiking with his family and, if he is given a chance, he will eat like the other dogs. He always tries to do new things to get noticed, to get his cheese. Once he gets angry because he doesn't get his cheese. Then something happens which changes Bogie's perspective on life forever.

The story is adorable and the illustrations make it even more beautiful. They lend clarity to the author's words and breathe life into the characters and events. Bogie's transformation from a small dog into that of a hero shows young readers that even small dogs can do big things in life - a message that is indeed inspiring and motivating. The author describes Bogie in a way that readers can connect well with him and his antics.

It's an endearing bedtime storybook and parents and grandparents can read it out to their kids and grandkids. The story is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. I like it because of the positive vibes and it is indeed uplifting for readers as they read about Bogie and his life. Books with a good message are perfect for kids.
