PreS-Gr 2—These standard early readers tackle designer dog breeds. The text is sparse, with three or four large-font sentences per spread. The breed is introduced along with its heritage, physical characteristics, life expectancy, and simple care requirements, such as feeding and grooming. Each book closes by explaining a quality that makes the dog a worthy pet (for instance, "Chiweenies are loyal pets."). Titles follow a nearly identical format. Photos are mostly close-up, full-page shots of the dogs, and humans are shown occasionally, though the books offer little size reference, even when the dog's size is emphasized. The popularity of these miniscule dogs and these titles' easy reading features make this set of interest; it will round out pet and animal collections.
