After I finished reading A Dog's Purpose, my 8 year old daughter begged me to let her read it too, but I was worried some parts might be too upsetting for her. Therefore, I was so excited when I found this book! It is the exact same story as when the dog is Bailey in the regular novel, however it has been adapted to be appropriate for young readers. It's perfect for my daughter and she is LOVING it, which is a very pleasant surprise because getting her to read has always been a struggle. I will definitely be buying all of the other A Dog's Purpose adaptation novels in the very near future!
Bailey's Story should be read by everyone who loves animals. And those who don't. Cameron's book is nothing short of genius They are loving companions to the elderly by giving them a distraction and not thinking about what they could have done differently in their lives, which is so common. Such a beautiful diversion. Another life to make richer. Dogs give children the gifts of compassion, responsibility and loyalty. Given the perfect circumstances, a child must help his family take part in giving the dog a loving, consistent home. Cameron, who shared Bailey's lives, illustrated how the differences of the masters reflect the character of the dog. I have always said people should model the love and beautiful unconditional love of a dog. They want, and give, the most insight into what is pure and good. I seriously believe their qualities could change the world in this frightening and uneasy times. Watch your pet. Watch how his eyes sparkle and their tails wag simply by hearing your step. Such love exists so rarely.

This book is good. But if you want to read it you can't be super sensitive because this story is a bit sad. Even though this book is sad, it is very good. It has lots of adventures and it is unpredictable. If you are a dog lover, you will like this book.
This is a good story even though I'm an adult. It brings back many memories of dogs I ad growing up. They were very good friends and when they died I was very unhappy and missed them very much. They can tell the good people from the ad too. If you read it I think you will enjoy it very much.
I ordered all the books I saw on Amazon of W,Bruce Cameron He is one terrific writer. I love all his Dog books. Bailey, Ellie &Mollie were all just adorable funny and downright heart breaking. I recommend anyone liking Dogs to purchase this writers books, .Really good books for children and teen agers, As well as adults and older people.
If you just need to a bit of reprieve from the turmoil in the world, then find yourself a nice comfy chair to curl up in and then just enjoy how this sweet tale will ease your tensions. I enjoyed it immensely.
