FINDING SUSIE written by Sandra Day O'Connor and illustrated by Tom Pohrt is a beautiful picture book for youngsters. In case you are wondering: yes, it is that Sandra Day O'Connor, the former Supreme Court Justice. I was so excited to see that an amazing female role model from my childhood has turned her skills into writing a children's book that my kids can appreciate. I read this book to my son (who is almost 5 years old) and he enjoyed it.

A perfect pet story from Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Jul 17, 2009 Sam Bloom rated it did not like it. Shelves: 2009-books, picture-books. This is not a good book, and no matter how successful the author was as a supreme court justice, I hope she finds other things to do in her retirement.

Young Sandra is an only child living on a Southwestern ranch with her parents and their ranch hands. A local storeowner finally gives Sandra a stray dog named Susie, who satisfies the child's longing for a cuddly companion. Though Sandra has her own horse, she wants a smaller pet that she can care for and play with. The story is written in a detached, old-fashioned style, with little emotion-or even motion itself-conveyed in either the text or Pohrt's illustrations. Life on a cattle ranch in the Depression must have been adventurous, but this interpretation lacks much excitement or novelty.

A "perfect pet" story from Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Sandra is growing up on a desert ranch surrounded by animals, but she wants one to have her very own pet. A tortoise isn't really friendly, a little rabbit is too fearful, and a young coyote howls to rejoin his pack.

Illustrated by Tom Pohrt. The former Supreme Court justice bases her engaging second book for children on her memories of growing up on a desert ranch where the heat waves sparkled like ripples on a lake. Ages 4 to 8). Sandra (whom we first see sitting with piles of books under a tree) wants nothing more than a pet, as there are no other children around. So her parents let her adopt a series of desert creatures: a tortoise she names Hercules, a bobcat kitten, a rabbit and a coyote.

Finding Susie, O& Sandra Day. From Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court, comes this fascinating book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land.

Courtesy of the O'Connor Family. Books, documentaries, a major feature film, even a best-selling aphy have celebrated the feminist litigator and second woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Still, all this attention to No. 2 implicitly raises the question of whatever happened to No. 1. Evan Thomas answers that question in his fascinating and revelatory biography, First: Sandra Day O’Connor.

A “perfect pet” story from Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.Sandra is growing up on a desert ranch surrounded by animals, but she wants one to have her very own pet. A tortoise isn’t really friendly, a little rabbit is too fearful, and a young coyote howls to rejoin his pack. A bobcat almost fits the bill, but soon grows too big and fierce to be a housecat. Sandra’s parents let her learn for herself that these animals are best suited to the wild, though it is often hard to let them go. Finally, a smiley little stray dog finds Sandra. Sandra names the dog Susie, and the two become wonderful friends.

I love this book written by Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. I am a retired elementary school librarian, and I feel that it has an important message to impart to children. Wild animals belong in the wild. It is best to have a pet that is meant to be domesticated. After attempting to bring home many other animals, Sandra at last finds the dog named Susie! It is a little lost doggie that needs a home! How perfect, because there are too many lost doggies out there who would benefit from the love of a child who is seeking a pet!!! Both the dog and the child can benefit greatly from the mutual love in this relationship!Finding Susie

A lovely story , which my grandson enjoyed. Knowing that this young country girl later becomes a Supreme Court Justice makes it even more interesting.

What a charming book! What better gift for a grand daughter than a book by one of the heroines of my life! My grand daughter is 6 and I will love sharing this book with her and telling her all about the wonderful life of my favorite Cowgirl Hall of Fame Justice.

FINDING SUSIE written by Sandra Day O'Connor and illustrated by Tom Pohrt is a beautiful picture book for youngsters. In case you are wondering: yes, it is that Sandra Day O'Connor, the former Supreme Court Justice. I was so excited to see that an amazing female role model from my childhood has turned her skills into writing a children's book that my kids can appreciate.

I read this book to my son (who is almost 5 years old) and he enjoyed it. He understood the entire story, but he did become a bit antsy towards the end of the book. Don't get me wrong, he was able to sit for the entire story; however, FINDING SUSIE is longer than our usual night-time reads. The book is probably geared for kindergartners and up based on his reaction. Although there are definitely preschoolers who will love this book (the recommended age range is 4-8.)

FINDING SUSIE tells the story of Justice O'Connor's childhood adventures with the animals that lived around her family's ranch. She absolutely adored animals of all types and kept bringing home wild animals with the hopes that she could turn them into her pet. Some examples of the animals that found their way into Sandra's heart included a tortoise, a rabbit, a coyote and a bobcat. She finally ended up with a stray dog which she named Susie.

In addition to the story, I thought the illustrations in this book were just wonderful. Mr. Pohrt's pictures have appeared on the cover of The New Yorker in addition to many other picture books. The details on both the animals as well as the people's faces are exquisite; and I found the illustrations to be a perfect compliment to the text.

I also really liked the messages in this book. I especially appreciated the overall idea that some animals are not meant to be pets -- they are better suited to living in the wild. There is also the message that it's not always easy to do the right thing. Sandra learned this lesson the hard way when she had to keep giving up the animals that she loved because they weren't happy being pets. I also liked that Sandra was persistent and never gave up throughout this story. She knew she wanted a pet more than anything and she kept on trying over and over again. I have a feeling that these same personality traits that Justice O'Connor had as a child served her well in her adult life.

Animal lovers and non-animal lovers alike will enjoy this tale of the quest for the perfect pet. Young Sandra (yes, this is written by Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice) lives on a ranch with her mother and father. It can get fairly lonely on the ranch and she begs her parents for a pet. The book chronicles Sandra as she comes across animals in the desert that need her help, and asks the question if wild animals make good pets?

Her first encounter is with a desert tortoise she names Hercules. There are nice facts about the animals sprinkled throughout the story, which kids will appreciate. In the case of the desert tortoise, we learn that they can live to be one hundred years old and that they dig deep tunnels in the winter and hibernate. Sandra also learns that they are beginning to disappear and ultimately makes the decision to return him to the desert.

The story continues with Sandra befriending a cottontail rabbit (who always seems afraid and never comfortable as a pet), a young coyote caught in a trap (she nurses him back to health and sets him free) and a baby bobcat (who ends up scratching her over some raw meat). Each time Sandra is hopeful that she has found the perfect pet, and each time she realizes that the animal would be better off in the wild.

The story ends with a friend of the family's bringing over a stray dog named Susie. Of course, Susie proves to be the perfect pet and friend for Sandra. Susie likes to be with Sandra and follows her wherever she goes. It's a delightful ending to a story about the universal longing for a pet.

The watercolor pictures do an admirable job of creating the desert setting. I grew up in Arizona and they whisked me right back to my childhood where desert tortoises were spotted occasionally, jackrabbits all the time and coyote's howling lulled me to sleep. Another really interesting feature (probably more for adults than kids) are the endpapers of the book. Here you see real photographs from O'Connor's childhood on the ranch, including one with her pet javelina. Finding Susie is a nice snapshot into the early life of a fascinating American woman.

I thought the book was very cute and read it to my grandchildren. This has nothing to do with the following complaint. My son gave me a $25.00 amazon gift certificate for my birthday, August 26. I went on your site and ordered a silver necklace with an owl pendant. I never got a confirmation about the order. So I tried to order it again and this time I was told that the gift certificate was not valid, meaning to me that it had already been used (by me). Could you please contact me to get this straightened out?
