Written By: Alexandra Horowitz
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers; Young Readers ed. edition (March 22, 2016)
I received a review copy from the publisher to review for the Cybils Awards
This book is engaging and is written with warmth, intelligence, and great analogies to help the reader better understand their dog’s frame of reference. In full disclosure, it’s also the only book I’ve read about how dogs think. The explanation for why a dog wouldn’t like a particular person hit home. It’s not that the dog senses the person is untrustworthy, but the dog sensing his owner is uncomfortable with that person. That makes complete sense to me. We had a dog that didn’t like a particular extended family member at all. I bet he got that sense from me. 🙂
Anyway, kids that are interested in how dogs think, interact with each other and interact with humans will enjoy this. Now I need to read a book like this about cats.
