“Katz's photographs depicting the dogs' vastly different personalities are great fun for dog lovers and a fine lesson for dog fearers. Lenore, it turns out, makes sure everyone is happy.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“This photographic essay aims at the heart of dog group dynamics on Jon Katz's Farm. A highly specific, not preachy, charmer.” ―The Chicago Tribune
“The book introduces Rose, Izzy, Frieda and Lenore, dogs that live on Bedlam Farm. It talks about the jobs that each dog is in charge of and about life on the farm. The pictures are all photographs taken by Katz. They lovingly show the dogs working and playing in each season of the year.” ―McClatchy-Tribune news
“Meet the Dogs of Bedlam Farm by Jon Katz is a beautifully photographed and clever story.” ―The Examiner.com
“This is the love letter people wish they could write to their own pets, and it makes a point well worth reiterating: in a family, all members are equally valuable.” ―Booklist
“The large, full-color photographs are totally engaging and capture the animals' distinct personalities. . . . The writing is crisp and clear, and the stories (each dog gets its own turn) are sweet and filled with gentle humor. This gorgeous, heartwarming book, great for quiet reading and storytimes alike, stands out from the pack.” ―School Library Journal, STARRED
“In Katz's first book for children, illustrated with lively photos, the author explains how the four dogs (which have been the subject of several bestselling titles for adults) that live on his farm in upstate New York have distinct roles and responsibilities. . . . dog-loving readers will value the attention paid to their individual contributions.” ―Publishers Weekly
“The simple, informative story is illustrated with high-quality photographs of the dogs in action, using a wide variety of shots and settings that add visual interest. Young dog lovers will enjoy this, particularly those who own border collies or black labs.” ―Kirkus Reviews

As soon as I started reading through it, I knew it was something special and that I'd buy it.
The photography and words are warm and loving, and it makes me long to own a place like Bedlam Farm filled with four-footed friends like this.
It's a real winner.
Just great work Jon.
What a poignant and encouraging message!
This is an excellent book for young children to teach them about love, friendship, and family.
Katz is a very talented and sensitive writer and photographer!
I paid $6 for this book on Amazon which is a bargain for a book that brings such joy!
P.S. You don't need to love dogs to enjoy this book but it helps!
~Barbara Techel, Author of Frankie the Walk 'N Roll Dog book series
Wonderfully photographed and charmingly written. A fantastic book for everyone.
