Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the fascinating world of the entire dog family. Superb real-life photographs of dogs, wolves, jackals and foxes offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history and evolution of the dog family, highlighting the many ways in which they have helped people throughout history. See the oldest-known remains of a domestic dog, an amazing tree-climbing fox, a rare golden jackal, a howling wolf, how a dog swims, a fox with bat ears, and a husky in sled harness. Learn why dogs and wolves hunt in packs, how dogs "talk" with ears and tails, the basics of looking after a pet dog, and how dogs were once used to sniff out truffles. Discover how special breeds of domestic dog have developed, the hierarchy of the wolf pack, how dogs were specially taught to help humans, why a hyena is not a dog, which members of the dog family are threatened with extinction, and much, much more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but incomplete March 18 2011
By R. M. Duenas - Published on Amazon.com
Just like other reviewers' children, my 4 year old daughter had a great time learning about dog breeds and matching the stickers to their "shadows". However, we believe a page must be missing from the book, as we were left with 12 dogs without any spot to stick them to. We ended up placing the extra stickers on the back of the cover and back-cover pages, but still, the publisher should be more careful about the quality!

3.0 out of 5 stars stickers are awesome, but none fit the outlines of the other dog spots Jan. 24 2011
By Social worker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
my 2 1/2 year old lovessssssssssssss the sticker book...so many dog stickers, but then there are all these dogs that are just outlined and you assume you are supposed to find the sticker and put the dog in that outlined area...after looking for about 20 of them we realized you don't do that in this book...but what is the purpose of the outlined dogs...other books you find the sticker and put it where the outlined dog is..other than that its a great book of wonderful stickers...they should have put the name of each dog under the sticker so it could have been a learning tool too...still so worth the stickers but my two comments above would have improved the book a lot...but don't let that keep you have not getting a great book of good stickers..i docked one star for each negative review..

2.0 out of 5 stars Not re-stickable, stickers don't match June 26 2011
By Guinevere Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The photos are great and very clear, but the stickers are not re-stickable and the stickers do not match the outlines that make it seem like you're supposed to stick stickers there. Also, I thought they'd do the popular, well-known breeds, but they have a lot of less popular breeds. Which makes sense if you include less popular breeds if you already have the well-known breeds, but if you only have a few, I think it's better to have only the popular breeds b/c otherwise it's confusing for little kids to see many breeds that they're not familiar with and unlikely to see in real life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much to this book. Oct. 13 2013
By L. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a bit more subsistence with this book. It's mostly just dog stickers with various descriptions below. Then, there are outlines of dogs with (different) descriptions below them to re-affix the pictures.
