Fishman, Jon Hero Military Dogs. NONFICTION. Lerner, 2017. $24.99. Content: G.
This book is a simple and easy explanation of the training, duties, and facts about military dogs. Its divided up by Guard Dogs, Scout, Dogs, Detecting Dogs, and Combat tracker Dogs. It features lots of bright pages with tons of photographs and fun facts bubbles.
This is a fascinating book, especially the history portion and the hero dog example, which brought tears to my eyes. At my library there is a big demand for dog books and for military books, so this will be a great combo. Perfect for K-2 graders, with fairly simple text presentation and short chapters.
