Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
The illustrations of a tan "everydog" racing across the cover and through the pages lead the reader to believe that life with a dog will be fast-paced. The illustration of a child being rushed down the street by the dog will, hopefully, lead the reader to realize the need for dog training. The book offers a colorful overview of dog ownership but goes into very little detail or insight. Chapters include "Choosing a Dog," "Coming Home," "Keeping Clean," "Staying Healthy," and "Good Night, Dog!" The good night illustration is very dark and predominantly blue, demonstrating the need for a cozy crate at night. However, instruction to "wrap a wind-up clock in a blanket near [the dog]" is out-of-date since very few modern clocks make ticking sounds. This book may be a good starting point for the child considering adding a dog to the family; however, should not be considered a comprehensive guide. "Dog Close-Up," a copy of the cover illustration with call-outs describing eyes, ears, nose, mouth, paws, and tail, is followed by a "Dog Life Cycle" chart and a simple ten-word glossary. Young readers may need assistance with these features. Information about helpful websites is available through www.facthound.com by using a special code on the book's last page. Woof and Wag: Bringing Home a Dog is part of the "Get a Pet" series of books by Picture Window Books aimed at the child reading at the ATOS 3.2 level or Reading Level Grade 1-3. Teachers should note that Picture Window Books' website www.picturewindowbooks.com offers complete information on each book's reading level and guidance with State Standards applications that is quite helpful to a teacher considering using this title in aclassroom.
