Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Hower
This book is one of the books included in the "Going to Work: Animal Edition" series. In this book, the reader will learn about animals that have important jobs just like humans. Some animals help police officers keep people safe. Sometimes police officers use horses when they need to control a large group of people. They also use crime fighting dogs to protect and guard people. The book begins with a brief history lesson about the first animals used to do this type of work. The reader will learn about a K-9 unit and the ways humans and animals form special bonds when working in this type of career. In this book, the reader will also learn which breed of dog is used for various crime fighting tasks and the type of gear the dogs wear to keep safe. Important words are found in bold print throughout the book and definitions for each word are included at the end. A website is given where children can find links to learn more about crime-fighting animals. The book also contains a table of contents and an index. This book would be a great resource to use when teaching children how to write a research paper. The captivating photographs and interesting facts will keep the reader engaged and wanting to learn more. Reviewer: Melissa Hower
