Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"A dog is a best friend for playing, and rolling, and running like the wind." A collaboration between the Global Fund for Children, Planet Dog Philanthropy and photographers around the world, A Kid's Best Friend by Maya Ajmera and Alex Fischer documents the bond between children and their dogs. Throughout, labels indicate where each photograph was taken (settings as varied as Bhutan, Russia, the U.S. and Indonesia are represented on a single spread). Ages 3-7.

PreSchool-Grade 1-This appealing series title is filled with cute kids and adorable dogs from around the world. The simple text and pictures show youngsters and their pups playing, interacting, and caring for one another. Countries include Nigeria, Poland, Argentina, Canada, and Bulgaria. The full-page, full-color photographs tell the whole story of these special relationships. An attractive addition with a universal theme.

By Melanie on October 26, 2003
Format: Paperback
This is a delightful little book full of beautiful pictures of children from all over the world with their dogs. When I sit down to read the book with my daughters (5 and 3 years old) they delight at the colorful pictures.

A Kid's Best Friend is effective on many levels. Convinced that dogs are sentient beings, I especially love that the pictures show a relationship between human and canine. The pictures capture my daughters' attention and are clear illustrations of the symbiotic relationships in which both child and dog benefit. Additionally, many different cultures are represented and each time we read the book, the girls ask about different children and their lives so far away.

This book has quickly become my daughters' favorite bedtime read. They request it by name each night after calling Sadie our sweet shepherd mix up on the bed to cuddle with them.--L.P.Watkins

Being a dog lover, I thought this was an absolutely wonderful book. The pictures are amazing, and I love the fact that they are of children and their dogs from many different countries. I don't even think I read the words the first two times I looked at the book!! I just looked at all the pictures of the doggies...and loved seeing the children in their different environments. I hope you enjoy this book as much as my Infant Room children and I did!!!:)

What a great book! Beautiful pictures of children and dogs from all around the globe appeal to people of all ages (my 8-month old son as well as myself), and large text appeals to those beginning to read. The message of the book itself is simple and respectful, and doesn't talk about the imminent purchase of a dog (thank goodness!).
