My resident critics, 4th grade Wynona Elementary, OK, all eyed the book with Kizzy on the cover before settling in to listen. They take their job as `apprentice critics¿ very seriously. They listened in rapt silence as the narrative began, and at the end agreed, `I wish Kizzy would come to listen to ME read.¿ As with other books in this Incredible Dog series, `Lady¿ the Therapy Dog, and `Boone¿ the Rescue Dog, Kizzy has an important story to tell. My students were very impressed that a little dog could do so much to aid people who struggle to read. The story of Kizzy and his job with those who must exert great effort to read was one that really touched a chord with my students who also have moments when they tussle over a word or phrase. The book provides a starting point for talking about reading, how hard it is to learn to read and comprehend what we have read, and how nice it is to read when we know no one will laugh if we miscall or misunderstand.Was this review helpful?

This BOOK is not just about KIZZY!
The 'Kizzy' book is not just about Kizzy, the dog. It is also about the people he 'touches,' and about the reader as well. Everyone has an 'issue' or 'shortcoming' which inhibits their image of themselves. But when you are met with unconditional love, affection and acceptance, which Kizzy provides, anyone can reach his or her full potential. In this book, it focuses on children, teenagers, and an elderly woman who are challenged in different areas. With Kizzy's help, they are able to improve their quality of life. I loved the book, and what it has to offer! I am proud to say, I own a copy of the book for myself, and have given it out as gifts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
