Blog Tour and Giveaway: All the Small Wonderful Things


Middle grade literature holds a special place in my heart. I am always on the hunt for a heartfelt middle grade read and when I heard about All the Small Wonderful Things by Kate Foster, I knew I had to read it. Plus, it involves a boy and his dog! There's nothing like a love of a dog, especially when you are a young child. Cue my heart melting. 

All the Small Wonderful Things just came out this week and is a Junior Library Guild selection for 2023. I partnered with Kate Foster to host a fantastic giveaway to celebrate the publication of this new novel. If you are a dog lover, (and have a rescue dog like me!), you will adore this book and giveaway!

All the Small Wonderful Things 

Written by Kate Foster

Ages 8+ | 240 Pages

Publisher: Candlewick | ISBN-13: 9781536225808

Publisher’s Book Summary: "In an endearing story about an autistic boy and his steadfast furry pal, Alex is convinced that winning a trophy at the dog show will help him make a real friend at last.
Eleven-year-old Alex knows that starting middle school will be a big change, and for an autistic person, change can be terrifying. He is sure that having a friend by his side will help. But how can he make one? Alex devises a plan to impress the kids at school by winning a trophy at the PAWS Dog Show with his trusty sidekick, Kevin the Cockapoo. This should be a walk in the park, right? If only. It turns out that finding a friend is harder than Alex thought—unless, maybe, friendship is about something more than popularity.

This charming story, told through Alex’s clear and honest voice, navigates relationships of all stripes between classmates, new neighbors, family, and, of course, a kid and his dog. After all, friendship isn’t one-size-fits-all—maybe it’s found in the small things where you least expect it."
