Bailey loved to go out for a walk with her human partner. Bailey is an Italian Greyhound and, like all dogs, her daily walk is the highlight of the day. Especially when their walk takes them to ‘the wall’. That’s a place where all her doggy friends and their human partners congregate – to visit, to share stories, to be a community, and, for the dogs, to get treats from the owners of the house behind the wall, Linda and Greg. This couple didn’t own dogs, but they obviously loved them as they always had treats ready for the neighborhood dogs who visited regularly. While the human partners congregate and visit, so do the dogs; many shapes and sizes, and breeds of dog. It’s all about friendship and community.
Linda De-Fruscio Robinson and Greg Robinson’s picture book story, Love Tails From the Wall, is a charming story, mostly about dogs, but also about their human partners, too. The dogs, especially Bailey, are full of energy and anticipation as they look forward to a walk to ‘the wall’ and a doggy and human visit with the neighborhood. The story is simply told but speaks volumes on the importance of community and friendship. It also teaches young readers about different types of dogs. And it demonstrates how the goodwill of humans, even those without dogs of their own, can bring together a community. The story moves along with care and is beautifully illustrated. This is a story that will appeal to readers of all ages, especially those who love dogs (even if they don’t have any of their own).
