K-Gr 3—Brief texts and clear, short sentences make these titles accessible to emerging readers. Facts about the animals' particular skills, physical attributes, and training are included. The audience is introduced to the likes of Jake the truffle-sniffing pig, Ace the homing pigeon, Buster the police horse, and Rex the acting dog. Large, colorful photos, many of them action shots, add interest. Words that might be new to readers are set off in bold font and defined in a picture glossary. However, some words seem unnecessary, as when "blind" is defined in Seeing-Eye Dogs. Informative captions clarify pictures and concepts without breaking up the texts. These are solid choices for browsers and beginning report writers.
