Booklist Review: "This volume in the Helping Dogs series is bookended by the story of Kicker, a golden retriever who helped relax people in nursing homes and hospitals, until he himself got cancer. After Kicker recovered, he returned to work, where he inspired young cancer patients. In the middle, this book briefly explains the origins of the therapy dog a Yorkshire terrier named Smoky visited her owner, a WWII soldier, in the hospital and was a source of comfort to many before delving into the qualifications and temperament required of a therapy dog today. A Fast Facts section gives additional notes, while a final Think about It section has readers think critically about therapy dogs and their purpose. Information is fairly introductory, making this best for early readers and browsers, but additional resources are provided in the back matter.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2017 Booklist"
