“A fun, heartwarming series about the puppies that train to become Guide Dogs and the families who help raise them.” – Little Paws (Penguin-Random House)


The Mummy Project – This heart-warming and entertaining book is a must-read for animal loving kids. (It’s suitable for Early Readers or to read to younger kid). Be warned  though, it will prompt your kids to ask if they can become a Puppy Raiser as well.

Magpies Magazines – All three tales would make satisfying reading for primary aged students. They are easy to follow with clear type and appealing doggy covers. Each one includes information about the work of Guide Dogs Australia and the requirements of Puppy Raising families.

Buzz Words – This short chapter book punches well above its weight in terms of providing thoughtful ideas for both individual pondering and further classroom discussion. Without being at all ‘preachy,’ it opens up issues of gender and cultural stereotypes, friendships, loyalty, standing up for what you believe in, self-empowerment and doing the right thing, and, of course, information about looking after a guide dog puppy.
