A Birth Day for Hannah earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
A Birth Day for Hannah is a darling picture book adorned with dozens of pages of vibrant photographs of huggable, lovable little puppies. After Hannah, a Bernese mountain dog, gave birth to precious puppies, she nurtured and nursed all nine of her pups as they grew and grew. Finally, they reached eight weeks of age when all her puppies were ready to find loving homes.
Children are sure to be drawn to Hannah’s story as told in rhyme along with the countless photos which are simply too cute for words. Penned and photographed by Linda Petrie Bunch, A Birth Day for Hannah is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

A BIRTH DAY FOR HANNAH is “another great book full of rambunctious puppies that leap and wiggle off the page, softly nudging the reader to buy another great Hannah story! I love it!”
–Nicole Magistro, The Bookworm of Edwards, CO
“It’s hard to go wrong with a book full of puppies. Linda Petrie Bunch’s photos are a complete delight, as she lets her readers share in the joy of being part of a batch of Bernese Mountian Dog puppies. The rhyming text follows Hannah’s litter of pups from birth until weaning. You’ll wish one of these puppies had gone home with you.”
–Robert McDonald, The Book Stall, Winnetka, IL
“Your book collection will not be complete without the Hannah Books. There are three titles about these real Bernese dogs – the most recent, A BIRTH DAY FOR HANNAH, stars an entire cast of puppies. These books are illustrated with beautiful photographs that make you want to meet Hannah. I just love these books and I hope that more will be coming soon.”
