I cannot stop reading this book. It is so adorable. I adore it more than I can even put into words. The puppies in this book are too darn cute. I mean, oh my goodness they are ADORABLE. My kids and I were totally in love with every single one of them, as was I. I also love the story because it is so fun and captures all the ways puppies add joy to our lives. I love the breed guide in the back. It was a great addition, so my kids and I could learn what breeds were featured in the book. A must for your home library if you are a lover of puppies.
Dog Days of History: The Incredible Story of Our Best Friends by Sarah Albee (, ages 9-12, $19.99) What is it we love about dogs so much? From ancient times to the present, dogs have guarded us, worked with us, marched off to war with us, and of course, just sat on the couch with us for a cuddle. Throughout the course of human history, this partnership deepened from dogs doing a service into friendship. Dogs have been by our side through it all, and this book by award-winning and New York Times best selling author Sarah Albee tracks our common story from wild wolves in ancient civilizations to modern-day breeds, highlighting famous pooches of the past and present along the way. This impressive volume is a complete story of man's best friend, from the first domesticated dogs, to the massive mastiffs that came over with Christopher Columbus on his voyage to the New World, to the pampered pooches of kings and queens, to hero dogs like Sergeant Stubby.
