Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Speaking Dog, part of the "Dog Ownership" Series from Capstone Press written by award-winning author Tammy Gagne, is a well-researched and easy-to-use guide to dog communication appropriate for ages 7 and up. For anyone wondering what their dog is trying to say, Ms. Gagne provides answers. In four concise chapters, "Man's Best Friend," "From Wolves to Dogs," "Your Dog's Five Senses," and "Barks and Body Languages" children learn about the human-dog relationship including pack behavior, smell, touch, gesture and all the ways in which we can "hear" our dogs. Captions with highly descriptive photos of a variety of dog breeds provide informative summaries for even the youngest readers. "Dog Data" sidebars located throughout feature interesting facts and behavioral tips about our relationship with dogs such as: "In 1977 scientists at Ein Mallaha, Israel, discovered the 12,000-year-old remains of an elderly person alongside the bones of a puppy. The person's left hand still rested on the dog's skull." The "Quick Guide to Canine Body Language" at the back of the book is an outstanding graphic that everyone who visits a dog park should carry with them. A nine-word Glossary, Read More and Internet Sites segments offer opportunities for further study and research and may require adult assistance. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
