Adult/High School—This oversize pictorial work profiles various canines; color photos on every page show them at work. Comments from the owners describe the dogs and what they did. Many individuals mention how hard it was for the animals not to find survivors, but what a comfort their presence was for the many firefighters and other rescue workers on the scene. Besides searching at the World Trade Center and at the Pentagon, dogs were used to locate remains at the Fresh Kills Landfill site. The book also has information about dog search and rescue and FEMA certification. A compelling browsing item that will attract teens.—Teri Titus, San Mateo County Library, CA
