Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only AKC-approved reference for children is the ultimate reference for those who love dogs! The book has information about the history and character of the breeds, as well as graphics showing where each breed originated, how big it is, and boxes containing a "fun fact" about each dog. Kids will also learn what they can do for and with their dogs — everything from cleaning ears and giving baths to competing in Junior Showmanship or Agility.

Book News Annotation:

Adapted for kids from the American Kennel Club's Complete Dog Book. Every AKC recognized breed is described with nice color photos and simple text, including "fun facts," excerpts from the Standard, and maps showing place of origin. Information on selecting, training, and taking care of a dog is also included.
