Wellesley mom Keri Boyle has always managed to keep herself career-minded and plenty active. But once one has conquered the presidencies of both the Hardy School PTO and the Wellesley Mother’s Forum, yet one’s salaried job plus the busy-ness of mothering/managing three kids seems hardly enough to fill the the gaping chasms of time in one’s day, one starts to cast about for the next project. In this case, children’s book author seemed about right to Boyle.
Her book Teddy the Dog — Be Your Own Dog, scheduled to hit bookstores in late May, introduces readers to a feisty, witty, canine who always wears sunglasses and is often described as “attitude with fur.” Teddy is an alpha dog who struts around town doing as he pleases and generally creating mischief, until one day a package shows up at his door. Inside the box is a cat, ready to teach Teddy the startling truth that it’s no longer a dog’s world! Can Teddy learn to accommodate the ways of his new friend while remaining true to who he is? Geared for kids ages 0 – 10, you can click here to pre-order Teddy the Dog — Be Your Own Dog.
