9781560374190: First Dog: Unleashed in the Montana Capitol

This award-winning and beautifully illustrated story is told from the point of view of Jag, the real-life Canine Special Assistant to the Governor of Montana.

Written for children ages 6 to 12, First Dog is Jag's story of how a cow dog from a farm in Whitefish---the last pup in the litter---traveled to Helena and became the First Dog.

Featuring fun and fascinating information about what a governor does and how Montana government works, First Dog teaches kids that government belongs to them---and shows them that one day they, too, could be sitting at the governor's desk.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Montana

About the Author:

Jessica Solberg was born and raised in Montana and graduated from Montana State University. She works as a book editor. Dogs and government are two of her favorite things.

Robert Rath is a book designer and illustrator living in Bozeman. Although he has worked with Scholastic Books, Lucasfilm, and Montana State University, his favorite project is keeping up with his family.

Review:

A little history, a few lessons on government, and a whole lot of tail wagging, barking, and squirrel chasing accompany Jag, Gov. Brian Schweitzer's border collie, as he makes himself at home in the state capitol. In their lively children's book, Bozeman writer Jessica Solberg and illustrator Robert Rath follow Jag through a day on the job as the governor's Canine Special Assistant and Security Dog. Adventures abound, as Jag meets city dogs, gets a pep talk from Sid the Squirrel, takes a few lessons in government from Phoebe the Pigeon, and accompanies the governor on a parade through Glendive. At the end, Jag concludes that he has an important job after all: "I help the governor make friends with the people of Montana...and I inspire even the littlest kids -- and pups -- to dream big." In First Dog, Jag also accomplishes the refreshing feat of sidestepping politics while inspiring young readers to take an interest in government. — Kristi Niemeyer, Montana State of the Arts
