Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
Sled dogs are brave dogs that work in the snow and ice. Sled dogs train from birth. They are usually Alaskan Huskies, Siberian Huskies or Alaskan malamutes—chosen because they are strong and fast. Their thick fur keeps them warm in the cold Alaskan winters and their thickly padded paws keep them from slipping on the ice. Though they are trained to pull sleds in the snow, sled dogs train all year to ensure they are ready when winter arrives. Kids are natural animal lovers and naturally love reading about them and the "Working Dogs" series teaches kids that some animals work just like humans do. The photos are so engaging kids may feel inclined to try and teach their beloved pet a few new tricks after reading about the amazing things these dogs do alongside their humans. In the meantime they will learn new words in both English and Spanish. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
