Exclusive Interview – Elisa Camara
The latest episode is up on The Decision Hour! Thank you to author, Elisa Camara Patriot Pup for being on the show. Listen in at http://www.heroesmediagroup.com/the-decision-hour/
Written in tribute to the author’s brother, Sergeant Mecat Camara, who was killed in the Beirut bombing in 1983, “Patriot Pup” is a sweet story of young Hank, his uncle the Marine, and the puppy they find in the woods. The story continues when the puppy (of course, it’s a bulldog) saves everyone from a threatening bear and is rewarded with his own dog tag.
This book is a good step up for grade-school children ready for the challenges of reading beyond sight words. The story’s themes of bravery, loyalty, patriotism and family make for an enjoyable read which will entertain the under-10 crowd, and the fun illustrations bring the lively tale to life. Reminiscent of many classic children’s books combining a child, a pet and an adventure, expect to see more of Hank and his “Patriot Pup” in the future.
