I like this short film because I think it is so neat to see how this dog goes to schools, hospitals, and libraries and helps children. It shows that if you are different from others, you are still a person who can make a change, and Stewy helps kids understand that.

Stewy Baby is a "dogumemtary" about a sweet therapy dog who helps children. The owner of Stewy's doggy mother was going to keep Stewy at first. But she sold her to a woman who works with children and writes children's books. She became a therapy dog and her owner wrote a book about Stewy called ''Stewy Baby.'' All kids love Stewy and Stewy loves all kids, but she likes the kids who are different the most. Now Stewy is the star of a program called ''Stories with Stewy,'' where she helps kids learn to love reading. How cool is that?

This is a true story so it is sentimental. Stewy almost goes to a different owner and then, none of this would have happened! I'm glad she didn't stay with her original owner!

Sometimes the camerawork is shaky, but the angles are great! There is one shot that is a close-up of Stewy's face where the camera is slightly tilted, making Stewy's eyes seem larger which is pretty cool.

The film was made in Idaho and it is so pretty there. There are lots of scenes in schools with Stewy and children. The background music is a simple, happy tune. It helps you understand how much this dog does. Stewy is the star. She is so cute. Stewy's owner, Kristin Herby really has a way with words, especially when she talks about Stewy. The message is that it's okay to be different and, even if you struggle with reading, you can learn to love it.

From watching this film, I learned that some kids have trouble with their differences and they can accept who they are. My favorite character is Stewy. She was so adorable and she won my heart. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. This would make a great addition to a kid and family film festival. Who doesn't love kids and dogs!
