about this item

This wonderfully illustrated book features 300 dog breeds, including every breed recognized by the American Kennel Club.

Fun double-page spreads show dogs in the seven official groupings -- Working, Toy, Hound, Terrier, Herding, Sporting, Non-Sporting -- as well as "designer" dogs like the Labradoodle and Chiweenie. There are also some obscure breeds recognized by other kennel clubs in Europe, like the Canadian Eskimo Dog and Australian Silky Terrier, as well as some dogs not yet officially recognized by the American Kennel Club.

There are 300 breeds illustrated.

The specially commissioned color drawings are accurate and engaging. At the end of the book is an entertaining puppy identifier where children can test their ability to recognize the breed of 30 puppies. There is also a Dog Breed Fact Index with interesting trivia about all of the breeds.

More than one-third of American households has a dog. With Big Dogs, Little Dogs, children and adults alike will enjoy learning and identifying the dogs that they encounter. It is fun and informative, and it might instill a lifelong interest in "man's best friend."
