Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog Book Review & Giveaway

Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog

by Audrey Kinsella

In an era of independent, fast-paced lives, it is often difficult for children to understand the importance of helping others, like the elderly and disabled. Kinsella’s book aims to change that, bringing young readers the story of Dingle, a friendly black Labrador, and his wheelchair-bound, independent-minded owner, Aunt Reeny. As Aunt Reeny struggles with acknowledging her inabilities, Dingle seeks to help her with daily tasks, ultimately illustrating the importance of help.

Inspired by her personal battle with rapidly progressive multiple sclerosis, Kinsella admits that as an independent individual who was once the person offering help, accepting assistance was quite a difficult and humbling experience.

Meet Dingle … a dog who really wants to help, what a switch! Join him on his journey to get his ideas on the table, the outdoor ice cream cone stand table one very hot summer day.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

This self-published book, by Audrey Kinsella, shows how helpful service dogs can be.  Not everyone readily accepts help, whether it is needed or not.  The handicapped person in this book is reluctant to receive help from her serviced dog, this reminds me of my 3 year old son and how he too prefers to do everything himself:)  Sometimes relying on others is a good thing.  With large pictures of dogs throughout the book, little canine lovers will be delighted.
