Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 8 to 12.

If your dog could talk, what would he say to you? Have you ever wondered what a dog is trying to say when he wags his tail or when he licks your cheek? In How to Speak Dog! Sarah Whitehead takes readers on a visual adventure into the world of dogs from their life experiences as puppies to training to safety issues. How to Speak Dog! encourages young readers to see the world from a dogs point-of-view and provides invaluable guidelines for first time pet owners. Readers will find helpful tips for training their pets to be loving, caring companions. The book includes photographs of children and their dogs, and step-by-step tips for training dogs to do everything from lying down to coming when they are called to walking on a leash. One of the best features of this handy book is the photographs, which feature children learning how to play and take care of pets; these photos are accompanied by easy guidelines about how children can make their pets part of the family, and wonderful companions to have around the house. How to Speak Dog! is highly recommended for pet lovers of all ages. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8

This well-organized and interesting manual covers grooming, health, training, exercise, communication, and more. It also provides excellent information that will help dog owners understand their pets. Whitehead discusses, and clearly shows in good-quality, full-color photographs, various canine emotions such as anger, contentment, fear, and playfulness, and highlights a variety of interactions with humans and with other dogs. The pictures aptly demonstrate both the emotional bonds between pups and their owners and training procedures. "Top Tips," "Dog Facts," checklists, and quizzes appear throughout. This title is a best in show for helping to develop more intuitive and knowledgeable young dog owners and appreciative pets.-Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
