My daughter enjoys the nonfiction companions to the Magic Tree House series, and she loves dogs, so this book is a favorite. It goes into how dogs were bred and what kinds of working dogs exist today (therapy dogs, dogs who assist the disabled, search and rescue dogs, etc.). However do be aware that there is an entire chapter on 9/11, including a section on Sirius, a bomb sniffing dog who died that day. Sensitive children may wish to skip that chapter.

I am an elementary librarian and I cannot keep this book on the shelf. The students love it! They pass it on to the next student without it even coming back to the library. Love all of the Magic Tree House books.

A great addition the Magic Treehouse collection that my boys have growing in their room. Informative and entertaining. They want my husband and I to get them a St. Bernard puppy for Christmas after reading this and the companion book :)
