Sutcliffe's masterfully composed photographs evince an eye for color, clarity, and balance as they document Rosie's puppyhood and early training, then capture spontaneous scenes of her at work with disabled children and despondent nursing-home residents. Accompanied by Calmenson's succinct yet sensitive descriptions of Rosie's varied work situations, each pictured visit attests to the joy and comfort Rosie brings to others. This is a close-up, valuable, and charming look at the contributions made by working dogs like Rosie."-ALA Booklist

Horn Book

"The generous full and half-page photographs depict Rosie's...training and her interactions with the sick or disabled children and the elderly people she visits. The heartwarming encounters will satisfy readers of all ages. Calmenson closes her enthusiastic account of the work of 'therapy dogs' with the addresses of associations that can supply further information." --The Horn Book
