School Library Connection Review for Hound Town Chronicles
This is a very readable set of early chapter books about service dogs. The simple plots and informative text make a winning combination. In each short book, a child is introduced to a dog, an adult explains how the dog is trained, and there is always an opportunity for the dog to help a character in the story. Along the way, the reader is also introduced to various breeds and situations. The simple illustrations show characters from all walks of life and many ethnicities. There are also questions at the end on a “What do you think?” page. This is a nice series to use in learning about helpers. Glossary. Table of Contents.
