" Introduced to me by my nephew Jeremiah. He received this book for his kindergarten graduation and is so proud to be reading a grown-up chapter book! " said.

" Interesting, exciting, and informative, just as any good children's historical fiction should be. What a great dog! " said.

" Good book based on a true story. " said.

" This book is very interesting and fun to read. I learned a great many things from it. I am recommending it to all of my students who like animals. It is an easy read, I read it in 1 hour. It is a series and there are two others as well. I will be telling one of the tutors I work with about this series as her student loves dogs and what better way to encourage reading than with a book about something he loves! " said.

"This is the second book from the Dog Diaries series that I've read--I'm really enjoying these! Each features a dog from history, and the story is told from the dog's point of view. This one tells the story of Barry, a rescue dog from the St. Bernard Hospice in the Swiss Alps. I read it in one sitting--a fascinating story, perfect for middle-grade readers, or as a read-aloud for younger kids as well. There are also a couple of sections at the end of the book--the history of St. Bernard dogs, owning a St. Bernard, and even a couple of photos of the hospice and of the preserved display of Barry that's in a Swiss museum. Cool story + factual background info = WIN. I know there's at least one more in the series, which I'll have to get my hands on... I hope Ms. Klise keeps writing these--they're fabulous!" said.

"This is a great book for kids that are beginning to read chapter books to pick up. This book is the 3rd in a series of books told from the dog's perspective. This story takes place in the Alps. It is about a St. Bernard named Barry and his life at a hospice that was dedicated to helping travelers along the Alps. The job of the St. Bernard was to guide those that have lost their way as well as to assist with search and rescues. Barry was exceptional at his job as he detailed his exploits in great detail from chapter to chapter and year after year of his life. Many of the details in the story are very accurate when compare to what really took place for the St. Bernards on the mountain.

I would recommend this book for any student that is looking to move away from picture books( Grades 3-5). The sentence structure is easy enough to take on and the chapters are short. Additionally, the dog is about dogs which most kids adore. It does bring up death a few times and is honest and open about the deadly nature of avalanches. Therefore, I would also make sure the student you recommend this book for is mature and able to handle the subject matter.
" said.

" Just like the other books in this Dog Diaries series, I also got to enjoyed reading this 3rd installment. There are a lot of interesting facts about the St. Bernard breed and this book is based from a true story. If you are dog lover as much as I do, you will love this book and it will a be good addition to your book collection. " said.
