Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Dachshund: The Hot Dogger is part of the "Little Dogs Rock!" series of books by Bearport Publishing geared to the 7- to 12-year-old child interested in learning more about small dog breeds. The book is filled with a variety of interesting chapters including "Ready to Race," with lively photographs of the "Weiner Nationals," "A Run for Fun," featuring dachshunds competing for "Fastest Weiner in the West," "The Badger Dog," "Different Coats and Colors," and "Top Ten Pet," which describes the dachshunds deep need for companionship and care. A mix of large photographs and illustrations blend with the large-print text. This book may be a good starting point for the child considering adding a Dachshund to the family. It includes a wide-range of important discussion topics for would-be Dachshund owners including health related issues featured in "Weiners on Wheels." The final pages, featuring "Dachshunds at a Glance" and "Best in Show" give basic details on life expectancy, weight, personality, and even the things a judge would look for in the dog show ring. The 19-word glossary includes many words that are not directly related to the Dachshund. The bibliography, "Read More" section, and "Learn More Online" offer opportunities for further study and research and may require assistance.
