Is your child interested in being a firefighter? Do they love dogs? Then this book is for them! Doggy Defenders is a new series from National Geographic Kids featuring different service dogs in the areas they serve. This particular book focuses on Dolley, a Labrador retriever, and her owner, Captain Herndon. Focusing on the different tasks Dolley has been trained for, the author introduces children to fire safety and the job of firefighters. Beautiful, full spread photos fill the pages complimenting the story and drawing the attention of smaller children. The reading level is low, making this a perfect read for those just starting on their own. The book ends with a Q&A with Dolley's owner and fire safety tips from Dolley herself. This series is sure to be a hit with your dog loving littles!
