Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Poodles, part of the "All About Dogs" series from Capstone Press's Edge Books imprint, is designed to aid children in the process of selecting and caring for a new dog, as well as provide basic historical information about the breed. Beginning with the chapter entitled "One Size Does Not Fit All" the book describes, through photos and scattered colorful paragraphs with blue backgrounds, what a poodle looks like, how it acts, and details the ways it makes a wonderful family pet. Three chapters follow including "Poodle History," "Fluffy Pompons and Big Brains," and "Caring for a Poodle." The "Poodle History" chapter includes an "Edge Fact" that a "dog that looks much like a poodle is pictured on a Roman coin from 111BC. "Poodles as Performers" and "Poodle Popularity" are subchapters with interesting historical photographs. The varieties of activities in which poodles excel and the colors in which they come are detailed in the "Fluffy Pompons…" chapter. A nine-word glossary contains several words specifically related to the poodle, including hypoallergenic. The "Read More Internet Site" chapters offer opportunities for further study and research and may require assistance. The Secretary of the Twin Cities Poodle Club was a consultant on this book's production. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
