I absolutely loved this story and the accompanying illustrations were fantastic. It’s a story that no matter how different others are, we must treat them with kindness. I would highly recommend this across age groups as it is such a lovely and heart warming story.

Luna the Howling Husky by Samantha Shannon is another adorable childrens tale about a husky pup that is different from all the others at first, but as she grows, gains confidence, and a loving family she is able to howl like all the others. I have enjoyed all of Samantha’s children’s books including Jake the Growling Dog and I love to share them with my children because they really enjoy the story along with the fun activities that are included at the end of each book. The illustrations throughout the book were beautiful, well drawn, and fully encapsulated the book and story itself.

Luna the Howling Husky Finds Her Howl by Samantha Shannon is one of the sweetest and best children’s books I’ve ever had the privilege of reading. I’m so glad the cover caught my eye, making me pick it for my grandchild. Love and acceptance are just two of the many wonderful things you can find within its pages.

The story opens with us meeting the unique Husky Luna. Luna isn’t like her brothers and sisters, many of whom have been adopted, while Luna is left behind. She is different, but she doesn’t let that or the fact that the others don’t want to play with her get her down.

Luna is able to find happiness just by being her unique self, which is such a great message in itself. Though as the story goes on we get to read even more heartwarming messages that, if you’re like me, will leave you feeling wonder struck. Between the amazing and engaging, talented writing of Samantha Shannon and the masterfully rendered illustrations of Lei Yang, this would be an automatic buy, but it gets even better with interactive pages that will help any child have fun while learning, as those pages continue to include messages from the book. This author and artist are both now on my to-read watch list.

I picked this book up for my kiddos (8 and 11) because we have enjoyed other stories by this author. This one, however, is our favorite out of them all so far! A beautiful story about kindness, empathy, friendship, and making mistakes. The illustrations are gorgeous and really make the experience that much more captivating. I’ve even shared this book with the older kids in my family and have found that it starts such wonderful and necessary conversations! The focus on social-emotional learning is absolutely incredible. If we focused more on emotional skills just as much (if not more) than intellectual, we would see an amazing change. This book is an awe-inspiring start, and we cannot wait to see more! I recommend this as highly as I can to anyone with ANY young ones in their lives at all. Some of the adults in your life may enjoy it as well!

This was a really cute kid’s story. my children really loved this book, it has amazing pictures that are colorful and go very well with the story line. This book has a wonderful story line about love and acceptance, Luna the husky doesn’t feel like she belongs. One day she makes a friend that isn’t of the norm, a cat, and the cat doesn’t care who or what she is. With this love from a friend Luna finally feels like she’s accepted and loved. But what she really comes to realize is she doesn’t have to feel loved and accepted to be the person you are supposed to be. I really enjoyed this book and so did my kids. What a great story.

This was such a cute story. I really enjoyed the message, that just because you are different from another, it does not mean you cannot be friends. Luna and Nemo’s friendship was so cute. They both learned to embrace their uniqueness and embrace who they were. I think many kids would enjoy this book and I recommend it.

Luna is a cute puppy looking for her howl. This is a story about being different and not fitting in. It shows us that it just takes one person to believe in us to help us find out howls and our true friends. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is written in a way that any child/adult can connect with.

Luna The Howling Husky Finds Her Howl is a children’s book designed for kids between the ages of six to ten years of age. The book tells the story of a young Husky puppy that does not seem to fit in with the rest of her siblings. She looks different because her eyes are brown and not blue like all her siblings. Luna also cannot howl at the moon like her siblings are able to do. One day while out playing Luna finds a quiet cat and the two become fast friends. When Luna finds her forever home with a loving family, she is finally able to find her voice. This was a beautifully written story with messages about friendship, love, acceptance, kindness, empathy, family, and finding your voice. The illustrations are bright, bold, colorful, and really bring the story to life. I highly recommend this book for children of all ages.

Such a beautiful book. Illustrations that leap off the pages and a story that warms the heart. Luna just wanted to be like everyone else, but they only made fun of her until she found a friend. Nemo the cat was different like Luna, she couldn’t do the right things either but in a moment of hope and asking to play they both found everything they needed to be happy. Love is all Luna needed and Nemo helped bring that into her world to cancel out the sadness.

Luna the Howling Husky Finds her Howl is a great kids book. I picked it out simply from the cover art. I love the northern lights and huskys, so it was a given I would read it to my son. The book tells a great story, but also has good lessons hidden within. Luna is not like her siblings, she can’t howl like they can, and she looks a little different. She is kind of the outcast, Rudolph, Ugly ducking, black sheep etc. She makes a new friend in a neighborhood cat, who makes a surprise entrance at the end of the story. This story teaches kids (and reminds adults) not to outcast those who are different. Everyone has their own talents and charms, and sometimes you need a best friend to help you shine. We loved the photos of the real life Luna and Nemo at the end, and comparing how great of a job the illustrator did. They were spot on, and all the pictures were so colorful and fun. My one gripe is the inconsistent rhyming. Some parts of the book rhyme and flow well, and others, not so much. Overall, I loved it and want a paper copy!

This is a cute children’s book. It’s a sweet story about being different and accepting that not everyone is the same. I have 2 children on the autism spectrum and I think this will help younger children understand a little bit about accepting themselves.

LOVE the illustrations! So detailed, colorful and there are hidden gems all over! No offense to the story (which is good itself) but I had more fun looking at the pages to see what I could find. Then imagine my surprise when I got to the end and it has all kinds of neat things! A child of any age will easily enjoy looking at all the pages while an older child will like both and get the meaning behind the story. Plus this will help a parent to chat about being kind to others and self.

I really like the “Sometimes we make mistakes and thats okay” little paragraph. The next couple pages are wonderful learning opportunities for all (adults too). This is such a good book all the way around that I can see sending this to families in my circle to help spread the kind word.

Well Done!

Luna is a husky that loves to play and have fun. She loves the snow. She is a husky with a lot of energy and enjoys her life. The only issue is that she is unable to howl like her siblings. No matter how hard she tries, she is unsuccessful. Not when the moon is high in the sky, nor when her brothers and sisters are singing in unison. And no one knows why. Will Luna find a way to howl?

How could I pass this up? The title and art caught my attention. I love the illustrations, in addition to the cute and vivid colors used.

I loved the friendship she developed with a cat. And I loved the message and the heartwarming story.

There are even more interactive activities to do after reading the book. I personally loved hide and seek and the word search.

This is a book I would recommend.

This is an adorable story about a husky. The text is written in poetic form but not too sing-song. Illustrations are vibrant and being out the husky personality. I read this book too my grandson and he loved it! We also have a husky malamute mix, and he doesn’t howl either. Small acts of kindness and love are the theme in this story. I love the friend and family Luna has on her life.

Luna the Howling Husky Finds Her Howl by Samantha Shannon. This is the cutest story and the pictures are gorgeous. This story is such a good story about loving everyone and not judging anyone due to their looks, personality or ability to do things. Luna is a husky puppy and she loves being a puppy but she feels like she doesn’t fit in because she can’t howl yet. She tries and tries, practices daily and she just can’t get it. She feels like she is an outcast with her siblings. One day she finds a cat that accepts her just the way she is and she finally feels loved. While this friendship builds her confidence she begins to be able to learn to howl. Such a fun, lovely book that has beautiful pictures and lots of activities to do in the back. This would make a great gift for the beginning reader and for the younger ones as well.

This is a cute story about finding yourself, making friends and being loved. The message is clear as well as fun for the children. When Luna feels alone the one who befriends her is a shy kitten. The two begin a story worth reading. Can Luna and her new friend really become friends? Will Luna’s siblings stop teasing her, because she can’t howl? The author has a well written story the children will love. I know we did. We also enjoyed the extra puzzles at the end of the story. Making this a learning story as well as fun. This story is fast paced and easy for children to follow along. It also opened a discussion following the reading.. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Luna is a young husky with brothers and sisters galore, but she doesn’t play with them much because she can’t howl, and she doesn’t fit in. This makes Luna feel lonely because she can’t sing with the winds or at the moon, no matter how hard she tries.

One day Luna makes a friend who is as shy and quiet as she is, so they play together and become the best of friends, but Luna still can’t howl and unlike her siblings, she hasn’t been adopted, but will she ever be able to howl and find her forever home?

This is charming story with lovely illustrations, and which has a very important lesson we all should learn and that is to treat everyone with kindness, even if they are different because everyone is deserving of happiness.

Luna the Howling Huskey Finds Her Howl is a cute children’s book that my five-year-old and I loved reading. The colorful illustrations help to bring the story to life. This is about Luna she’s a husky but she can’t howl like the rest of her siblings can. Luna is saddened by the fact the other siblings get adopted and she doesn’t. So follow along with Luna and her special friend Nemo. There are several messages in this cute story. Being kind is important Being different is ok because that’s what makes us special. Just because one is different doesn’t mean they will be loved any differently. I highly recommend reading this book. My son and I look forward to reading more from this Author.

This was such a wonderful book. The beautiful bright cover grabbed my attention right away. I love animals and a husky is my dream dog. I loved the message in this story. Differences are not something to be sad about. Our differences make us special. Love is given to all. Luna and Nemo became great friends because they were different. Great great message to kids. I also enjoyed the bonus pages after the story to engage little ones with even more. I will certainly be looking for more books by this author for my grandson.

Not a bad thing to say about this book. Firstly the illustrations in this are absolutely amazing. And the message this story teaches is one everyone could use sometimes. Just because you’re different doesn’t mean you’re less and we should all embrace what makes us who we are and to surround yourself with those who accept you for all of you.

Luna the husky is very unique. Unlike other huskies, Luna cannot howl at the moon when she wants to. Because of that, her husky siblings bully her and treat her poorly. They all get adopted quickly but Luna is left behind. She meets a cat who is also unique. Together, they treat each other with kindness and find a furever home!

I love the illustrations in this story! They are very vibrant and engaging. The story is also very well done. Share this one with youngsters of all ages!

By: Samantha Shannon

This is such a sweet children’s book. It features Luna, who is a husky that enchants readers from the start. Luna is not ordinary and Samantha Shannon does a fantastic job exploring the difficulties in such a way that even the youngest of readers will understand. The illustrations are absolutely vivid and whimsical and add to the enjoyment in the story. I love that this story has a focus on social emotional well being of children, specifically with a focus on kindness. At the end of the book there are multiple activities for children that focus on kindness. This is a book that I will most definitely be gifting to the young readers in my life and that has found a featured spot in my classroom library.

Luna the Howling Husky Finds Her Howl was truly a cute read for all ages, I was able to read this to my grandchild who is almost three and my niece who is 9. They both loved it as I did as well. What really helped us was the illustrations, it helped us all really feel like the story come alive!! I love that within the story there was lessons and life advice, like using your voice to speak up, family, friends, and how kindness truly can truly turn the day around for anyone.
I truly loved the author and the illustrators imagination with this story, I believe that kids of all ages will LOVE this book and the ending with the fun stuff is a nice bonus, I have the electronic version of this book and cannot wait to get paperbacks for my grandson and my niece! Truly a great book!

This is a children’s author that I have enjoyed reading from the first book I picked up. I was excited to see a new children’s book for me to read. Luna is a husky who finds her voice inside herself. She is such a great character. We have seen her in other books by this author which is great to see her with her own book. This is not only a great story but the learning aspect part of the story adds to the story. I enjoyed the colorful illustrations on each page. They are interactive and will keep your child engaged to the end. This is a great children’s story that any child would enjoy reading. I highly recommend this book.
