About the Author:

Lisa Rosenthal is a pet owner and playwright. John Caruso is the director of humane education at the Anti-Cruelty Society.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-This guidebook helps children establish friendships with their dogs and develop responsibility by caring for them. The introduction for parents discusses things to consider before bringing a dog home, how to choose the right one for your family, foster dog care as a preliminary tryout, and more. The main text covers puppy care, "creature comforts," safety, food, games, and projects. More than 60 activities including crafts, recipes, and games are suggested as are helpful hints to make vet visits and travel with pets easier. Concluding sections have an extensive reading list; resources including Web sites, organizations, and a list of hotels that welcome pets; and a bibliography. Scattered throughout the book are "Paws for Thought," boxed sections with factual tidbits about canine pets. A real treat for dogs and their kids.
