Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Sylvia Firth

"Here is another title in a new series called “Amazing Science: Life Cycles.” The life cycle of a golden retriever is related using a combination of digitally produced pictures and easily understood text. Readers learn that there are usually eight puppies in a litter. A newly born puppy cannot see or hear, but it has a good sense of smell that helps it know its mother. When a puppy is two or three weeks old, it begins to walk, play and take frequent naps. At eight weeks old puppies usually leave their mothers for new homes. The whole cycle may begin again after a grown dog is two years old. Much additional information is added to the book using sidebars; a chart that clearly illustrates the three stages of a dog’s life; a bibliography; a glossary; a list of “Fun Facts”; and websites located through FactHound. It is reassuring that these sites were checked by the publishing staff. Primary teachers and young children will find this book useful and instructive. This should be on a priority purchase list for schools and libraries." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
