Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
Therapy dogs are smart dogs that help people. Therapy dogs might work in nursing homes, hospitals, schools or libraries. Only dogs with a good temperament are chosen to be therapy dogs. They have to be calm when meeting new people, they cannot bark at the loud machines in hospitals and they must always obey commands. Some therapy dogs keep people calm at the hospital, others just sit and visit with the elderly and still there are dogs that will listen to kids read. Kids are natural animal lovers and naturally love reading about them and the "Working Dogs" series teaches kids that some animals work just like humans do. The photos are so engaging kids may feel inclined to try and teach their beloved pet a few new tricks after reading about the amazing things these dogs do alongside their humans. In the meantime they will learn new words in both English and Spanish. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
