Booklist Review of Heroic Dogs

Cover: Heroic Dogs

“Most kids have a soft spot for pups, so the Heroic Dogs series is sure
to be a hit. These early readers each address one specialized canine occupation.
Double-page spreads offer brief paragraphs set off by bright
graphics, highlighted facts, and multiple full-color, often full-page
photos. The text, set in a medium-sized font, covers job descriptions,
skill sets, and training, and each title shows dogs in action along with
a brief profile of one current dog hero. Medical Detection Dogs features
the Labradoodle in its discussion of super-sniffing canines that suss out
particular diseases. Search and Rescue Dogs describes how these canines
must be strong and able to endure harsh conditions (e.g., German
Shepherds) and have superior senses of smell (like Bloodhounds). Labradors
have a prominent place in Service Dogs, which discusses ways
such dogs assist people who have physical, mental, or emotional medical
conditions. In Therapy Dogs, readers learn about the ways all kinds
of dogs are trained to interact with a variety of people, offering comfort
to hospital patients, first responders, travelers, testifying witnesses, and
even stressed-out students. Each title is written in consultation with a
training-area specialist, and all include a glossary, additional reading
selections, and access to a publisher-sponsored website. The accessible
content and attention-getting covers will appeal equally to report writers
and animal lovers.”
