Therapy animals can improve a person's mood, motivate a child to read, and comfort the sick--sometimes even more successfully than humans. How? Simply the act of being present, friendly, "pet-able," and attentive is often all it takes. In this introduction to therapy animals, kids will learn about the special traits required of non-human caregivers and the places where these animals work--from schools to hospitals to nursing homes. The bright pictures and fascinating text are sure to engage emergent readers and give them a deep respect for the work these animals do.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3-Brief texts and clear, short sentences make these titles accessible to emerging readers. Facts about the animals' particular skills, physical attributes, and training are included. The audience is introduced to the likes of Jake the truffle-sniffing pig, Ace the homing pigeon, Buster the police horse, and Rex the acting dog. Large, colorful photos, many of them action shots, add interest. Words that might be new to readers are set off in bold font and defined in a picture glossary. However, some words seem unnecessary, as when "blind" is defined in Seeing-Eye Dogs. Informative captions clarify pictures and concepts without breaking up the texts. These are solid choices for browsers and beginning report writers.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
