9780152054045: Hardworking Puppies

All puppies grow up to be dogs, but these ten lucky puppies grow up to be dogs with jobs. The story counts down from ten to zero as each puppy pairs up with a hardworking human--a firefighter, a lifeguard, and a clown, among others. But no matter what their duties, these ten puppies get plenty of playtime, treats, and love.

With Lynn Reiser's simple text and colorful illustrations, young readers will enjoy learning about popular canine careers while also doing some simple subtraction . . . without working very hard at all.

Includes a "Paw Notes" section with interesting information about working dogs as well as simple arithmetic.

About the Author:

LYNN REISER is the creator of many highly regarded children's books, including My Dog Truffle, Two Dogs Swimming, and Ten Puppies, a Bank Street College of Education Best Children's Book of the Year. She lives in Hamden, Connecticut.

Review:

PreS-K. Grooming a favorite topic in a fresh way, the author-illustrator of Ten Puppies (2004), and others, introduces a crew of dissatisfied dogs: "One day, just keeping busy was not enough. The puppies wanted more." Selected one-by-one by a human trainer, each of the 10 bright-eyed furballs lands an exciting job, one that (as an endnote explains) can actually be performed by a dog--from "apprentice sled puppy" to "guide puppy" to "expert pet." The countdown premise is clearly presented, but what will stick with most children is the artwork, in which Reiser achieves distinctive textures through a process involving "Sharpie markers, Wite-Out, watercolor paint, scissors, tape, and a copy machine." Even if kids aren't ready for the arithmetic concepts, they'll coo over the wriggling pups and connect with the underlying messages about performing a task well; giving and receiving plenty of affirmation ("Good puppies!"); and balancing work and play. Try this on toddlers who adore Susan Meyers' Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! (2004) or Sandra Boynton's Doggies (1984). Jennifer Mattson (Booklist - Jennifer Mattson )

PreSchool-Grade 2-In this countdown companion to Ten Puppies (HarperCollins, 2003), 10 canines become bored and seek adventure through employment. One by one, each is paired with a human and given a professional responsibility-the first becomes a beginner firefighter puppy and the last, an expert pet. In between, readers encounter a therapy puppy and a groundskeeper. On the left-hand page of each spread, those who remain are seen sitting, sleeping, or scratching, with the hint of a new employer (human feet are shown) bringing hope to them. The appropriate numeral appears in an upper corner. On the right, the newly adopted pup is shown in a framed scene, happily obeying a command. The number is spelled out here. On the final spread, the 10 puppies reunite for playtime. Paw Notes in the back matter offer additional information on the jobs; a subtraction table is also included. Reiser's crisp, uncluttered, artful illustrations are the result of Sharpie markers, Wite-Out, watercolors, scissors, and other materials. A worthwhile purchase for storytime and as an introduction to subtraction.-Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL (School Library Journal )
