A noteworthy review of Domestic Dogs from Children's Bookwatch on April 1, 2007
Written on a second grade level, profusely illustrated in color, and specifically designed for use with students in grades 1 through 5. Each title has large-print title features, reinforced library binding for extended shelf life, a table of contents, informative sidebars, a glossary of key words and phrases, resource lists for further research, a comprehensive index, and an introduction to the author. This is recommended for schools and community libraries to purchase for their pets/wildlife collections.
