NSTA Recommends - Coralee Smith, Associate Professor Elementary Education and Reading

"Do you yearn for an easy-to-read book that will encourage students to ask questions all day long? This book does that and more! It takes questions that children have asked about dogs and provides developmentally-appropriate, child-friendly, scientific responses. The childrens’ questions are identified by either the child’s age or grade level and geographic location. The responses are provided in clear, concise, easy-to-read paragraphs. The illustrations throughout the book add to the overall appeal for children and teachers, too. This book is a fun and fast way to discover scientifically sound responses to children’s questions, like the following: “How do dogs find the bones they have hidden?" "Are there any dogs without hair?" "Why do dogs lick people?" "Can dogs be friends with cats?” This book was “kid tested” by a second-grade student who read the questions, assumed the role of an elementary teacher, then read the responses to her pretend students. She began by asking, “So, have you ever seen a dog drool, class? Have you wondered why dogs do that?” She continued, “Well, I certainly have seen my dogs drool all over me, but why do they do that? She waited for her pretend students to respond, then continued: “Well, today we just happen to have a book that tells us more about dogs. So, everyone, please listen while I read to you about dogs.” This book provides the springboard for children to think and learn about dogs in a non-threatening format that is easy to read and understand. Isn’t this is what science learning is all about for children? It lends itself to interaction and encourages further authentic questioning. Imagine what it could do for your elementary students." - NSTA Recommends
