Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–5
Kizzy is a therapy dog, and this picture book begins with a television camera crew arriving at his owner's house to follow the pup on a day's work as a R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog). Kizzy enters classrooms, the home of an elderly stroke victim, a speech-therapy clinic, and a facility for troubled teens, spreading encouragement and hope, and helping all of the individuals he meets practice reading and speaking. A brief explanation of the R.E.A.D. program follows the story. The writing is clear, simple, and accessible to beginning and older reluctant readers. The average-quality artwork is done in charcoal with little color (shades of blue, and black on white). The facial expressions are well drawn and Kizzy is sure to strike a chord with children. A serviceable addition.
