Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Toy Poodle: Oodles of Fun is part of the "Little Dogs Rock!" series of books by Bearport Publishing geared to the seven-to-twelve year-old child interested in learning more about small dog breeds. The book is filled with a variety of interesting chapters including "Tops in Tricks," which describes the true story of a Toy Poodle named Chanda-Leah who could do more than 500 tricks. She painted pictures, played the piano, and became a celebrity. Heart-shaped call-outs give tidbits of information including one in which Dr. Stanley Coren stated that poodles are the second most intelligent breed of dog. "Water Dogs" describes the Toy Poodle's early history; "Down-Sizing" and "Measuring Up" describe the breed's increased popularity as well as the differences between Standard, Miniature and Toy Poodles that are all the same breed. "Getting Clipped" describes the Toy Poodle's fur and the different types of clips, including a show clip. A mix of large photographs and illustrations blend with the large-print text. This book may be a good starting point for the child considering adding a Toy Poodle to the family. It includes a range of important discussion topics for would-be owners including the fact that toy poodle pups are very fragile and should be handled carefully by children. "A Small Hero" details the story of Jana Kohl and the puppy mill dog, Baby, who she rescued and wrote a book about to try to stop puppy mills. The final pages featuring "Toy Poodles at a Glance" and "Best in Show" give basic details on life expectancy, weight, personality, and even things a judge would look for in the dog show ring. The twenty-five word glossary includes many words that are not directly related to theToy Poodle. The bibliography, "Read More" section, and "Learn More Online" pages offer opportunities for further study and research and may require assistance.
