"We LOVE this book. It's beautifully written and illustrated. This sends the perfect message I'm trying my best to teach my son." -- Mom of a three-year-old boy
"Valenza’s Little Lovedog teaches the very young reader (and adults, too) who experience hardship how to triumph in difficult times. The illustrations show colorful, adorable animals. Little Lovedog wears a purple collar with a lovely red heart-shaped locket, a reminder that, as the author says in her dedication, if you’re kind, 'You make the world a brighter place.'"
"This story is so sweet. Love dog gets made fun of for his long back and wonders how he will have any friends for his bday party. On his walk home, he meets many animals who are in need. He helps each one and then they hop on his back to walk to a bday feast. There are beautiful lessons that love is helping those in need. Also, what seems like our greatest weakness may turn out to be our greatest strength. And be a friend to make a friend."--Amy, PB Reviews (Instagram: @pb_reviews_amyrohbaugh)
