Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
What did you like about the book? The Dog Patrol functions as both a how-to manual on taking care of a dog and a celebration of kids who have made significant efforts to protect and help dogs. Information is also included about the history of dogs and humans. The book is filled with attractive color photographs with clear captions. Tips include options for adopting a dog, how to find a lost dog, how to protect your dogs’ paws and more. Each chapter profiles two young activists who are helping improve the lives of dogs from small actions like rehabilitating individual dogs to big actions such as writing a book that raises money for shelters. Readers can easily browse through the book or read it cover to cover. Includes a glossary, index and photo credits. This is an excellent resource for anyone thinking about getting a dog, as well as for those who already have dogs. Highly recommended.
