Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Jack Russell Terrier: Bundle of Energy is part of the "Little Dogs Rock!" series of books by Bearport Publishing geared to the 7- to 12-year-old child interested in learning more about small dog breeds. The book is filled with a variety of interesting chapters including "Into the Tunnel," which describes the true story of a dog competing at a Go-to-Ground Jack Russell Terrier trial. "The Sporting Parson" describes the Jack Russell Terrier's early history; "A Tough Dog for a Tough Job," "More Jobs for Jacks," and "On the Move" describe the many activities at which Jack Russell Terrier's may excel. These chapters also open the discussion topic of this breed's increased activity level and propensity to get into trouble. This book may be a good starting point for the child considering adding a Jack Russell Terrier to the family. "Star Power" and "Real Life Adventures" chapters detail some famous Jack Russell Terriers including Eddie from "Frasier" and Wishbone. The final pages featuring "Jack Russell Terriers at a Glance" and "Best in Show" give basic details on life expectancy, weight, personality, and even the things a judge would look for in the dog show ring. The 24-word glossary includes many words that are not directly related to the Jack Russell Terrier. The bibliography, "Read More" section, and "Learn More Online" pages offer opportunities for further study and research and may require assistance.
