This is an entertaining, oversized book loaded with very big color photos of each breed of puppy.
The text is quite realistic about both good traits & what "you need to know" about the breeds. Between the great photos & information, this would make an excellent book to use with children as you begin considering the right breed of dog for your family & lifestyle.

If you have a purebred rescue it's also fun to see what they must've looked like as a puppy!
