Grade 2-5-- A photo-essay about the training of a guide dog. Honey, a golden retriever, is born at Guide Dogs for the Blind in California. After initial screening at the school, she is sent to the home of a 4-H member, a little girl, where she stays for about 15 months. Once she is returned, Honey is introduced to and trained again with a new owner. Clear full-color photographs show the transition from puppy to working canine. The text is lucid and brief, highlighting points of this process. Although it has no index, the book would still be a good addition to materials on blindness. It is for younger readers and has a wider scope than Susan Kuklin's Mine for a Year (Coward-McCann, 1984; o.p.), and could supplement and introduce Beverly Butler's Maggie by My Side (Dodd, 1987), written from the viewpoint of the blind owner. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA

Honey, an ingenuous-looking golden retriever bred in San Rafael, California, to be a Guide Dog for the Blind, spends her early months as a 4-H project for nine-year-old Amy, and then returns to Guide Dogs to complete her training and placement--in her case, with Sister Anne Gelles, a teacher. In vivid, appealing color photos and clear, well detailed text, an excellent presentation of a perennially interesting subject. (Nonfiction. 6-10) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
