Children's Literature - Katie DeWaldYoung readers will enjoy learning about shih tzus in this book from the "Pebble Books: Dogs" series. Amusing photographs of dogs and their caretakers acquaint the reader with the particulars of the shih tzu breed and aid in comprehension of the text. Each page is bright and colorful and provides factual information about shih tzus without being complicated or overwhelming. Readers will learn about the origins of the shih tzu breed, how shih tzu puppies change as they become adults, and how to take care of shih tzus. The repetitive text and 162-word vocabulary make this nonfiction book accessible to young readers. Teachers, parents, and readers will appreciate the table of contents, glossary, and index, as well as the list of books and Internet sites offering more information about shih tzus. Linden and the "Pebble Books" series deliver an entertaining, informative book that is all the more valuable because the young reader can read it independently.
Text and photographs present an introduction to the dog breed known as the shih tzu, including its growth from puppy to adult, and pet care information.
