Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Possibly the finest of the Pebble “Dogs” series of books, Collies captures the true essence of the breed in a delightful way that is appropriate for early readers. The photographs beautifully complement the text and cover the variety of colors and behaviors of this friendly, gentle breed. The large type, short sentences, and crisp photographs help even below-level readers breeze through various chapters including “Gentle Collies,” “From Puppy to Adult,” and “Taking Care of Collies.” A great deal of the book illustrates the breed’s nature as a herding dog, with sheep, toys and family members. The chapter about “Taking Care of Collies” illustrates their need for daily brushing, daily exercise and companionship with people. Each page has a picture of a smiling collie; the early photograph of a collie with a kitten will lead to interesting discussions. The “Read More” and “Internet Sites” sections offer opportunities for further study and research about this breed and may require assistance. The book invites readers to use a special code and visit www.facthound.com for age-appropriate sites related to this particular topic. Parents, librarians and teachers will want to collect all of the books in this series, since each is well-written, engaging and captures the essence of its particular breed while supporting national science standards related to life science.
