Gr 3-7-This interesting, entertaining book has chapters on "How Humans and Dogs Became Friends," "How Dogs See the World," "How Dogs Talk," and "How Dogs Think." The question-and-answer format is interspersed with facts and stories in sidebars. Topics include the oldest breed, getting a dog to stop barking, whether canines can do math, and the title question. Beautiful full-color photos show many breeds, which, unfortunately, are not identified in captions. Another minor drawback is the lack of an index, limiting the book's usefulness for reports; however, it is a terrific addition for general interest.-Kathleen E.
