Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
I Like Poodles! is part of the "Discover Dogs with The American Canine Association" series of books by Enslow Publishers geared to the five to eight year-old-child interested in learning more about dogs. The twenty-four page book includes chapters with topics such as "Is a Poodle Right For You," "A Dog or a Puppy," "Loving Your Poodle," "A Good Friend," and a note to parents. The American Canine Association states on its website that it is "America's Largest Veterinary Health Tracking Canine Registry" and offers breeders and dog owners the opportunity to register with their service—ostensibly to provide healthy dogs to the public. As they claim to be a Canine Registry and have a link for Professional Breeders, it is surprising that no mention is made of acquiring a dog from a breeder in this book. In fact, only shelters and rescue groups are mentioned. Photographs of frolicking Poodles end with a final photo of what appears to be an ungroomed Poodle behind a chain link shelter gate. The author states that Poodles "were born to swim" and goes on to state that they "like to watch what is going on around them," and other bits of information that could apply to nearly any breed of dog. The eight word "Words to Know" glossary contains two words directly related to this breed and general dog terms including groomer and veterinarian. The bibliography, "Read About Dogs" and "Internet Addresses" sections offer opportunities for further study and research, however, there are no links to the more detailed and informative sites including the Poodle Parent Club and the American Kennel Club. Lisa Trumbauer's Poodles, part of Capstone Press's "Pebble Dogs" series, would be a much better selection for a school library or parent purchase for this age group. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman

Our warrior code is the same as the warrior code that the cats use. Just with a few things added on. If leaders dissapear for 5 days without warning the deputy will take their position. Patrols are posted by the leader. Ignore godmoders and Drama Queens. No powers.
