Doggy Defenders series from National Geographic Kids for ages 4-8 [Review & Giveaway]

Ages 4-8 - Hardcover $9.99 - National Geographic Kids

Children are drawn to puppies and dogs for fun, activity, friendship, and unconditional devotion. In real life or in animated stories, the allure is real and usually pretty hyped-up.

In the shadow of major events like the United States' 9-11 tragedy when dogs were used extensively for search and rescue or earthquakes and floods world wide, dogs unflinchingly serve man.

The Doggy Defenders series from National Geographic Kids places beloved dogs in service in a variety of manners - Search, Fire, Police, Therapy. This is not a set of fictional stories about animals, it is about real life dogs who are lovingly trained to served, how they are cared for, and how they go on to serve man (or woman, or child).

These real-life adventure books will teach as well as brighten the day for the reader.
