Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Planning to adopt a puppy? This book may provide some important points, helpful suggestions, and tips to consider. Using a question-and-answer format, readers can find out points to consider when getting a dog, such as pet food costs, veterinary bills, allergies, or suitable breeds. Read about the care involved in dog ownership, including grooming, exercise, and housebreaking. Find out about basic dog training, such as how to give commands like "sit," "stay," or "down." Miles explains the body language of dogs, such as what indicators mean they want to play. The final chapter briefly covers what to do when your dog is lost or dies. Readers will find short comments on the insets about a dog's experience with its family, such as Goldie the puppy, who scrambles to eat French toast, and Buddy the dog who feels at home with his family. Throughout the book, Miles includes color photographs of different dogs. In addition, future dog owners may wish to check out the list of websites for further information. Some children may need support with the informational text features, such as navigating the layout of the text and insets and using the glossary and index. The book provides some basic information; there is no content consultant listed. This title is part of "The Puppy Place" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
