Berkeley Heights, NJ, November 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Approved by the American Humane Association, these titles for grades 3–4 not only support the Community Helpers and Careers curriculum, they also provide great supplemental reading material. Each title in this series of six elementary-level books looks at a different type of working dog, its history, breeds used, training, the work they do, and what happens when they retire. In each book a true story about a real dog hero and his handler is featured.
"We realize that books about dogs are very popular with young readers so we’re certain they’ll enjoy reading about these dogs and why they’re heroes," says Mark Enslow, President. "Each of these titles can also be tied to various themes often popular in schools and libraries. Some of these themes include Fire Prevention Week, Blindness Awareness Week, and the events of September 11th. Children who enjoy visits from their local police dog or participate in therapy dog reading programs may be interested in learning more from these working dog titles.
"And our service dog title can help educate students as service dogs assisting in classrooms becomes more commonplace."
