(5/1/15) PRAISE for I WANT A DOG, FROM DOG EXPERTS "Darcy Pattison does a remarkable job on several fronts with her wonderful new book I Want A Dog: My Opinion Essay. She introduces the value of the written text at an early age to children. This cannot be emphasized enough in our early classrooms. With this comes an important lesson regarding the responsibility of owning and caring for a dog. As President of the Labrador Retriever Club representing the breed with the largest number of dogs I know how imperative responsible dog ownership is and Darcy does a wonderful job instilling this at an early age. This is a remarkable children's book that has a lesson." -Fred Kampo, President of the Labrador Retriever Club PRAISE for I WANT A DOG, FROM SCIENCE EDUCATOR "I find these books to be the perfect resource when teaching persuasive writing and opinion essay. Students are immediately interested in the engaging story, much more so than when introduced to this style of writing using an English text. The prompts included make for an excellent teacher resource and can be used an extension to the text, adding depth to the learning. " Peggy Carlisle, NBCT, Director, NSTA Preschool/Elementary Division, President-Elect Society of Elementary Presidential Awardees, NSTA.

I teach deaf kids and am always looking for visual means to communicate ideas. The way this book is set up with the five sense information listed on each page - wow - and the illustrations are so FUN!
I am going to introduce these books to my class next semester and I hope we can make our own books based on Darcy's example.
