War Dogs: Churchill & Rufus by Selbert - ADVISABLE

Selbert, Kathryn War Dogs: Churchill & Rufus.  Charlesbridge, 2013.  $18.  Content: G.  PICTURE BOOK.  NON-FICTION.  

During World War II, one of Churchill’s constant companions was a miniature brown poodle named Rufus.  The two lived in bunkers, flew on planes and addressed the nation together.  

The tradition of famous people and their dogs continues.  For younger children learning about war, this is a nice introduction with a cute character.  Information wise, there is some value for older students, but not enough to write a report on or anything.
