Ever wonder how well your dog understands what you need? What about thinking that he knows that he wants to assist (if only you'd let him)?
Meet Dingle ... a dog who really wants to help, what a switch! Join him on his journey to get his ideas on the table, the outdoor ice cream cone stand table one very hot summer day.
About the Author
Hello, I'm Audrey Kinsella, author of Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog.
This is my first children's book, though I'm a long-time writer and medical research librarian, who has written many helpful healthcare articles and books on telecommunications, the elderly, and the disabled in the last 20 years. I've become progressively disabled with multiple sclerosis (MS) during these years and have learned, with great difficulty, how to accept help from people and from caring animals. It's time to share that experience with others who are just as resistant to accepting any help or support.
Take a look at the personal journey taken from wanting to needing help—just like Dingle’s! From Western Carolina Woman, “Being Helpful,” Oct. 2010:
About my latest book,
Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog
Now is the time to share Dingle's story. He's not a trained service dog. His elderly owner isn't yet convinced of the need for this training. Dingle's story may go a long way to getting the most resistant people living with disabilities to finally accept a little help that others (young and old people, and dogs, too) want to extend.
And we can help you do this!
An accompanying workbook provides easy-to-use teaching materials for children who want to help the elderly and disabled, and suggests take-home project ideas for providing help. See details about “Let’s All Help our elderly and disabled friends. Lessons from Dingle: The Helpful Ice Cream Cone Delivery Dog,” here.
