Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. Cally is a young girl whose mother had passed away about a year ago. Cally finds it easier to not talk to anyone. There is a homeless man in the story that Cally shows empathy towards. She also becomes friends with a boy who is blind and cannot hear very well. Without giving out too much about the story, it really was about a family coming to terms with the death of a family member. I haven’t cried that much for a long time. Great book! I think that this is a great read for children who have lost a loved one. It lets them know that it’s okay to grieve and in your own way.

Schneider Family Award. This is a story about a young girl who loses her mother, but still sees her. No one believes that she can see her Mom, so she decides to stop talking. Grief and friendship are dominant themes. Lovely book with great character development. ( )

When Cally says she sees her dead mother, no one believes her. The only other living soul who sees Cally's mom is a mysterious wolfhound who always seems to be there when her mom appears. So when Cally stops talking how will she convince anyone that her mom is still with them or persuade her dad that the huge silver-gray dog is their last link with her? This story's characters are all very likeable. I really liked the dog and how he seemed to be there exactly when Callie needs him. (Ms. Connie) ( )

When Cally Fisher says she sees her dead mother, no one believes her. The only other living soul who sees Cally's mom is a mysterious wolfhound who always seems to be there when her mom appears. And when Cally stops talking—what's the point if no one is listening?—how will she convince anyone that her mom is still with them or persuade her dad that the huge silver-gray dog is their last link with her?

A Dog Called Homeless is the gentle and touching story of how one girl's friendship with a homeless dog can mend a family's heart.

Fifth-grader Cally Louise Fisher stops talking, partly because her father and brother never speak of her mother who died a year earlier, but visions of her mother, friendships with a homeless man and a disabled boy, and a huge dog ensure that she still communicates.… (more)
