A review for readers

A Book of Dogs Breeds for Children By Amber Richards is an interesting short book with colorful pictures of different kind of dogs. Your young children will be fascinated by the kinds of dogs portrayed on the pages of this book. The author did a great job with her explanation of each race of dogs. She capture the essence of their species with words that will be understandable by young readers and those you should read to, also.


The pictures will entertain the eyes of those who learn by visual means and their parents. A Book of Dogs Breeds for Children has a colorful picture of a dog on each page with its description. They are short and sweet, just what is needed for children between pre-kinder and third grade.

A Book of Dogs Breeds for Children will teach not only about the true nature of the different breeds but also that no matter their differences, they are all still dogs. They are tall, hairy, big, short, fat, wrinkled and long, but they are dogs nonetheless.

These differences can also be applied to all races of humans. We too come in different shapes and colors but at the end we are all humans. That is a lesson we all need to learn to find love, peace and brotherhood in this world, something we all need in this time and age.

This job is well done by the author, to be liked by all sort of kids, teachers and their parents. A very nice addition to any library, be a school or home.

My father after work would let us climb up on his lap and practice our reading on him. Not only did dad let us read to him, but he was a terrific storyteller. He could tell some really outrageous, farfetched, tall tales about wrestling alligators with his bare hands or a bear etc. Dad also had a great sense of humor and made up some really funny little songs that he often sang to us (off key).

My father’s mother died a year before I was born. Dad and mom’s home (wherever we were) kind of became the place that (more…)
