About the Book

Thinking Big is important to eight-year-old Jaime Osborn. Jaime is a dwarf. Her body will grow to average size, but her limbs will always be short. Jaime is one of the Little People of America. The Horn books calls Thinking Big “positive” and “reassuring” and Publishers Weekly calls it “special in every sense.”

Doug the black Labrador is just a pup when he comes to spend a year with George and his foster family. Afterwards, Doug will become a guide dog for a blind person. Since George has problems with his eyes, it’s possible that he will need a dog guide one day. Mine for a Year is a remarkable true story of a boy and a dog.
