Text and photographs introduce dogs as pets, their features and characteristics, and information on the basic care of dogs.
Children's LiteratureA dog can be a wonderful pet and this selection in the "All About Pets" series uses simple declarative sentences to describe the major characteristics of dogsfour paws, long and short hair, tails and pointed teeth. Like all living things they need food and water and a clean place to live. Dogs also need to be groomed and have a place to play. The "Words to Know" section contains more information than the book. Full-color pictures appear on the left-hand page and the single sentence text on the right. There is a list of other books and Internet sites for more information as well as an index/word list. Since the back matter is written at a much higher reading and comprehension level than the text, adult assistance will probably be required to effectively access or use these resources. 2001, Pebble Books, $13.25.
