Meet the Author:

Kathryn A. Zolman never expected to write a children’s book, but when Pineapple came into her life and she heard the story of how this sweet, smart dog got her name, she thought it would make a fun book for parents to read to their children. Pineapple is a Bull Mastiff, German Shepherd, Chow mix, and much like a real pineapple, she knows how to stand tall and is very sweet on the inside!

Kathryn is an avid dog lover. Along with her husband and daughter, they have raised three Doberman Pinschers, each with their own unique personality and character. Kathryn is an advocate for not only raising children to respect all animals, but also to be thankful for the pure joy that they bring to our lives. In writing this book, Kathryn seeks to spread a positive message and hopes it will help children express more gratitude in their lives.

My Review: 

Are You a Pineapple? is a cute little tale of a boy and his dog. The little boy, Kevin, has to come up with a name for his new puppy. The two bonds as they try to figure out which name fits the most. Kevin takes her all over the place to go through potential names she likes the best. It was fun taking this little adventure with the two to see what they decide.  She shows Kevin how special and smart she truly is. It was so heartwarming to watch their relationship grow. I love that the story show how the beauty of friendships, trust and patience brings so much happiness.

Are You a Pineapple? is beautifully illustrated by the talented artist, Walter Policelli. The pictures perfectly follow along with the text the pages, which help readers’ hold their attention as to what is going on in the story. Little ones will definitely let out a giggle or two when visually seeing Kevin and his new pup’s actions.

I am giving Are You a Pineapple? a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are between the ages of four and eight. I can easily see it on the shelves in elementary school classrooms and in local public children’s libraries. 

I received a hard cover copy of Are You a Pineapple? from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion. 


  1. Thank you so much for your kind words and positive review! I truly enjoyed writing about Pineapple's story and hope it brings years of enjoyment to children all over the world!

  2. The title alone will attract readers and the boy getting dog love makes it a must read.
