Happy Thursday!  It’s time again for Book Traveling Thursday!  This is my second time participating in BTT.  Visit the BTT Goodreads Group for more info and to see upcoming themes.


This week’s BTT theme was your favorite bookish pet…

Old Dan and Little Ann from Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls


Amazon // Goodreads

This book brings me WAY back to my grade school days.  This book has always stuck with me because it literally destroyed my soul.  If you are looking for a good ugly cry, pick this bad boy up.  Old Dan and Little Ann…. I just cant.  I’m tearing up just thinking about this book.  I would say the right age range for this book would be 9-13ish.  I feel like boys can really relate to this book, but appeals to girls as well.  I look forward to the day my kids will read it, and I will be there for them with a box of tissues and a shoulder to cry on.

Original Cover – 1961


Actually… I like this cover.  I love the vintage vibe I’m getting from it.

Love!  Nailed it!

  1. This book smacked me right in the feels. It’s been years since I’ve read it. I should give it another go. I recently had to put my dog down so now might not be the best time….it might be a little too fresh. 😢

    1. Too soon. I’m so sorry for your loss! This is one reason I haven’t let my son read it yet. We had to put down our 3 year old dog unexpectedly due to cancer. It has been 2 years, but it’s still too soon for him.

      1. Thank you for your kind words and I’m sorry about your loss as well. It’s so rough losing a pet. I do think this book does an amazing job at depicting grief and loss though.
