Frankie the Walk 'n roll dog by Barbara Gail Techel
As the readers read this short book about Frankie's life they will learn what it is like for a dog to have to learn to walk with wheels. Frankie, a miniature dachshund, must learn to walk with aide of wheels after a ruptured disc puts him down, but only for a short while. Frankie is a wiener dog with much energy and spunk. Frankie loves hamming it up. He learns how to put his best paw forward. This would be an excellent book for children who need walking aides (or wheelchairs) to help them get around. However, anyone who reads this book will love Frankie and be amazed at the come back Frankie makes. This story is based on the author's own dog and true experience.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
