Miracle Dogs of Portugal, a great gift for young readers


Are you looking for an educational gift for your kids that ignites their desire to learn and explore? This is a busy time of year in the classroom and at home.  Teachers and parents alike are looking for new and exciting books to share with their kids to ignite their love of learning and exploration.

Aiello believes books open a door to miracles…and wants to share a little Christmas "Miracle" with children who may have lost many of their beloved books and toys during Hurricane Sandy.

The almost-true story of historical figure Henry the Navigator and the history of the Portuguese Water Dog is an inspirational tale for children; opening their eyes to the rich stories of history and the miracles that one person can create in their own lives.

Praise for Miracle Dogs of Portugal
“This well-intended tale offers a passing glimpse of history and a reminder about trusting one's instincts.” ~Denver Post

“The storyline is engaging; the characters feel real, particularly Henry; and the story incorporates educational material nicely.”  ~James Henderson, professor of Curriculum and Instruction, Kent State University

"Tracy has an incredible ability to connect with children though her storytelling and rich character development.  The kids cheered Henry on from the beginning to the end of his nautical adventure." ~Laura Murray, First Grade Teacher, Mitchell Elementary.
