Praise for Raising Lumie!
*”While imparting solid information about guide dogs and their work, Bauer (Soar) employs her well-honed skill at depicting believable, evolving relationships that are rooted in love and nurtured with encouragement. She balances Olive’s big emotions and funny, forthright narration with the light humor of secondary characters and a satisfying, big-hearted ending.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
*”Bauer once again works her magic, crafting memorable characters overflowing with courage and kindness who react in believable–but also admirable–ways to the challenges in their lives . . . The pitch-perfect ending will leave readers both smiling and crying–simultaneously.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“If the Hallmark channel produced children’s movies, they’d option Bauer’s latest in a flash. . . Don’t resist. Just give in and let the wholesome story wash over you and work its magic. . . . A gratifying tale with realistic life lessons and literal puppy love.”–Booklist
