School Library Journal
If you are looking for a book about canines that is entertaining as well as immensely informative, this is it. In a lively, conversational tone, Mehus-Roe offers a vast amount of material, from the history of dogs to vacationing with a pet, and provides practical and upbeat explanations, ideas, offbeat tidbits, and pertinent details. Some chapters should be required reading for both parents and children before an animal is brought into their lives. Without ever becoming preachy, the author emphasizes the importance of being a responsible pet owner. She highlights appropriate and imaginative fun activities to do with a dog. Many excellent black-and-white photos and clever illustrations capture the personalities and physical characteristics of a variety of canines and document the bond between them and the people who love and work with them. This humane and knowledgeable volume definitely deserves a spot on library shelves.
