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

"'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."

"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."
