Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A domestic dog called the Yorkshire Terrier is so small it easily fits in the palm of a person's hand. A wild dog called a Fennec Fox is tiny, too, and is about the size of a pet cat. Many wild dogs are becoming endangered. There may only be about 100 red wolves left in the entire world. Dogs die out because people take over their natural habitat and because they are hunted. Pages are chock full of fantastic photos and illustration and side bars add more unusual facts. Several facts are written inside a yellow tennis ball like a dog might chase and easy-to-do quizzes are written inside a round dog tag. The tag and ball allow readers to scan pages and find information in addition to the 100 paragraphs containing things to know. Some topics include taming a dog, caring for a dog, show dogs, clever dogs, and the body language of dogs. Did you know that dogs should have their own tooth brush to keep them from getting gum disease? However, they need help brushing! These and many other facts are found in this well-researched book that informs and entertains. The spread about dog legends and tales is particularly interesting. From it, readers can learn about Cerberus, a many-headed dog from Greek mythology, killing hounds that worked because of a curse in the book called the Hound of the Baskervilles, and how coyotes are part of many Native American tales. The format of the book is well-suited to gathering information for reports. However, most students will pick it up just because they have an interest in dogs. This book belongs in the "100 Things You Should Know About" series. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
