Editorial Reviews

Review

...a mini museum between the covers of a book. -- The New York Times

The folks at DK have almost singlehandedly rejuvenated if not reinvented the often moribund world of non-fiction books for children. -- Newsweek

These books' striking visual impact will draw in even the most casual readers. -- School Library Journal

From the Inside Flap

Full-color photos. The natural history, habits, and domestication of the dog are described--how it evolved from the wolf, how social behavior enables both wild and tame dogs to survive, and how each breed is different from the others. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Just like other reviewers' children, my 4 year old daughter had a great time learning about dog breeds and matching the stickers to their "shadows". However, we believe a page must be missing from the book, as we were left with 12 dogs without any spot to stick them to. We ended up placing the extra stickers on the back of the cover and back-cover pages, but still, the publisher should be more careful about the quality!

my 2 1/2 year old lovessssssssssssss the sticker book...so many dog stickers, but then there are all these dogs that are just outlined and you assume you are supposed to find the sticker and put the dog in that outlined area...after looking for about 20 of them we realized you don't do that in this book...but what is the purpose of the outlined dogs...other books you find the sticker and put it where the outlined dog is..other than that its a great book of wonderful stickers...they should have put the name of each dog under the sticker so it could have been a learning tool too...still so worth the stickers but my two comments above would have improved the book a lot...but don't let that keep you have not getting a great book of good stickers..i docked one star for each negative review..

My 1.5 year old son loves dogs. I wanted to give him some fine motor skill exercises - so I bought this book. We spent a lot of time just looking at all of the pictures. Then he figured out that they were stickers and started trying to peel them off the paper. I would help him peel the stickers off and then I found the dog on the page and he would try to place it. I was glad that the stickers were somewhat re-positionable, as sometimes it took more than one try to get the match close to the shape on the page.

Note: the dogs are not in any real order, so it is definitely and hunt game (which my 3.5 year old loved). Also, there are more stickers than there are places to put them in the book.

I would definitely buy this product again. I haven't looked, but I would also get this type of book for cats and other animals to reinforce my sons recognition of animals.

The photos are great and very clear, but the stickers are not re-stickable and the stickers do not match the outlines that make it seem like you're supposed to stick stickers there. Also, I thought they'd do the popular, well-known breeds, but they have a lot of less popular breeds. Which makes sense if you include less popular breeds if you already have the well-known breeds, but if you only have a few, I think it's better to have only the popular breeds b/c otherwise it's confusing for little kids to see many breeds that they're not familiar with and unlikely to see in real life.

I was hoping for a bit more subsistence with this book. It's mostly just dog stickers with various descriptions below. Then, there are outlines of dogs with (different) descriptions below them to re-affix the pictures.
