Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Could your pet be a hero? You never know and after reading about these fourteen different animals, you might just have a different perspective on your pet. As expected dogs and cats are featured and dogs often help the blind, serve on search and rescue teams, call 911 and one even performed a Heimlich maneuver to stop his mistress from choking to death. Then there are animals you would not imagine being heroes—a retired police horse who rescued other farm animals when a fire broke out, Lulu a potbellied pig who managed to get help for her owner who was having a heart attack and Willie the parrot who alerted the babysitter to a choking child. The stories each fill a spread and the text is brief but sufficient to tell the story. Often the happy owners are shown with their pet heroes. Inspiring and informative, this book should appeal to a variety of readers. While aimed at older readers it would be enjoyed by younger readers who are being read to. A Level 3 book in the "Scholastic Reader" series that is appropriate for those reading for inspiration and information. This book is targeted to grades 1-3, falls into the Guided Reading Level "M," has a lexile of 870 and a word count of 1182. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
