Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good introduction to the physiology of a dog, but it doesn't have to be that deep  Nov 11, 2008
This book is part of the Uncover Book series. The center of the book is made up of layers of plastic anatomical models of the physiological systems of a dog. The text surround the cut-out middle contains various facts related to the featured system. Photos and illustrations further support the information presented. As you lift each page, you can isolate the featured system and reveal another layer.

The pages, front and back, cover the system suspended in the cut-out area. The areas covered are as follows: Best Friends (with a see-through image of Labrador Retriever), Skull and Jaws, Skeleton, Cardiopulmonary, Reproductive, Digestion, Nervous System, Muscle System, and Skin and Fur.

The book presents many facts related to featured system. In some cases, I was surprised to learn new things about dogs (a litter of pups can have more than one father). I also found myself wanted to enforce knowledge I already knew (calling one of my dogs over so I could feel his legs as I looked at the pictures and plastic representation of the dog's leg bones).

The book doesn't provide an exhaustive explanation of the systems (I found the cardiopulmonary section lacking). Some of the plastic representations are a little disappointing (the reproductive system is a small squiggle). The book is more of a springboard to delving deeper elsewhere if there is an interest.

Overall, I liked the book. I feel it would be of great interest to most young readers and would be enjoyed by the adults sharing it with them. The book is not just for dog owners. It would pair nicely with other books in the series so the reader could compare and contrast different species.
Wonderful Book!  Aug 22, 2008
As a dog breeder, I really value the visual details provided in this imaginative book. It's a accurate representation of canine anatomy using relevant descriptive terms. I highly recommend this book.
A little disappointing compared to earlier books in the series  Aug 12, 2008
My daughter loves both dogs and Uncover books, so we were excited to see this one come out. I have to say, we were a little disappointed. Both the facts presented in the text and the parts included in the model seem to have been chosen randomly. The book does not present a systematic introduction to a dog's anatomy and the facts do not join together to make a whole as they did in the human body book, where every page talks about a different body system. It did not hold my child's interest as much as the earlier books did.
