THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS CHILDREN'S BOOK REVIEWS
''This charming, heartwarming, and inspirational book is based on the true story of Norbert, the author's dog. Children will immediately fall in love with the pint sized dog, whose story is presented using a journal format. Wonderful artwork, a handwritten text, and a memorable story make this a book that children and their grownups will greatly enjoy reading and looking at.''

KEN MCELROY, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
''This mother-daughter owned independent publishing company beautifully proves Norbert's message that ''you don t need to be big to make a BIG difference in the world.'' Keep an eye on Polly Parker Press; these gifted entrepreneurs are re-imagining the world of children's book publishing.''
PET PARTNERS® NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
''Pet Partners® is proud to have played a role in Julie Freyermuth's children's book about adorable little Norbert, her real life Pet Partners teammate. Bringing smiles to patients in hospitals and other facilities where animals are usually not allowed is a very important job--and Norbert is wonderful at what he does! Finding one's purpose in life is sometimes obvious to others, but not to ourselves, and it just takes someone's appreciation to bring it to light. What a wonderful message to children & adults alike. The accompanying artwork by Virginia K. Freyermuth, PhD is absolutely delightful!''
- Paula Scott, Marketing Coordinator
BOSTON CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, PAWPRINTS PROGRAM
''I have the opportunity to see this story come alive when Julie and Norbert visit the hospital. Little Norbert brings BIG smiles to patients, families and staff. From the perspective of a child life specialist, this book is an inspiring story for children of all ages. It is a story that drives home the idea that individual differences do not need to hold us back. Congratulations Julie and Virginia. Cheers to you Norbert!''
- Lynn Belkin, Child Life Specialist/Pawprints Coordinator
INTERMOUNTAIN THERAPY ANIMALS®, R.E.A.D.® PROGRAM

STORYBOOK COVE, CHILDREN'S BOOKSTORE
''This uniquely illustrated and simply, but endearingly, told story of a real 3-pound dog discovering the wonderful thing he can do in a BIG city will engage young listeners and their grown-up readers as well. The photo-like illustrations are strikingly beautiful and supplement the text so well. Children will enjoy discovering new details at each reading. Norbert's pencil drawings will inspire young ones to start an ''Artist's Journal'' with photos and their own drawings of a special event in their lives. Children will appreciate the subtle message that everyone has gifts to share with others.''
- Joanne Bibeau and Janet Bibeau

SETTING THE SPACE INTERIORS, LEADING-EDGE DESIGN COMPANY
''This book is truly inspiring. A story that will resonate with children of all ages. You will surely fall in love with Norbert as we did.''
--ASHLEY BRYAN - ARTIST, WRITER, ANTHOLOGIST, STORYTELLER, & NOTED SCHOLAR
''The NORBERT story of a Little Dog is so well paced that children will chant the refrain ''What can Little Me Do?'' a question that children often ask. The carefully painted illustrations, with children's art interposed, brighten the pages. Children and adults will enjoy Norbert's adventure.''
DR. PETER LONDON, PROFESSOR EMERITUS, UMASS DARTMOUTH, & AUTHOR OF ''DRAWING CLOSER TO NATURE'''
''I believe that little Norbert has captured a deep and under-represented value; indeed, what can one small ''kid'' do? The moving illustrations of him capture his pluck and innocence perfectly. The text is wonderfully simple, musical and accessible. This book is a winner in every category.''
DREW CANOLE, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, FITLIFE.TV

like you see on all his videos on youtube. Also, ONLY ONE picture has his tongue sticking out. It seems they
could have done a better job with the pictures. However, the story is really good.
