BOOK REVIEW

ONE INCREDIBLE DOG!  BOONE
CHRIS WILLIAMS
ILLUSTRATED BY JUDITH FRIEDMAN

The book is about Boone, a search and rescue dog.  There are several stories where Boone is called to help rescue victims.  A person was trapped in a collapsed building - Boone came to the rescue and found the person very quickly.  An eight-year-old girl is missing and Boone is asked to help again.  Sure enough, Boone helps locate the girl.  Another story involves a man who did not show up for his grandson's birthday party.  Boone is called in to help and does find the man.

This is an excellent book for young readers that will teach them the importance of the search and rescue dog.  Each story is interesting and will capture the young reader's attention while at the same time they are being taught a very important lesson about search and rescue dogs.  The book also gives some information as to how these dogs are trained for search and rescue. 

The illustrator, Judith Friedman, has excellent drawings throughout the book, which make you feel the warmth and love that everyone feels for Boone. 

This book is highly recommended for the young reader.  It will also teach a few of us "older" readers a few things about the search and rescue dog.  This book is highly recommended.
