Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Dogs can be all kinds of heroes, as Jack and Annie find out when they show the results of their research in this companion to the fiction book, Dogs in the Dead of Night. One of the texts in the "Magic Tree House Fact Tracker" series, this nonfiction text begins with a chapter about the similarities between dogs and wolves and how people started breeding dogs for special purposes. An illustrated chart features dogs and their relatives. Actual events are described about search and rescue dogs, including stories about a bloodhound, a border collie, and a Saint Bernard. One chapter relates events of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack in New York City and how the rescue dogs played a tremendous part in helping during the aftermath of that tragedy. A group of illustrations with short explanations explain how service dogs assist people. Other real stories tell about how dogs worked during the war, and there is a group of stories about individual dogs that became heroes for different reasons. Another chapter features the unique work that dogs do in helping wildlife researchers and ecologists. In addition to lots of illustrations, there are some photos of the dogs in action. Children will enjoy the fascinating stories written in the same pleasant style of the other Magic Tree House books. Tips on how to do research using books, museums, zoos, tapes, and the Internet give kids ideas on how they can learn from a variety of resources. This book is great for independent readers and also for adults to read to younger children. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
