Bulldogs - Dog Books for Kids Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Early History Chapter 2 Fascinating Features & Care Chapter... 3 Amazing Yorkie facts Conclusion A Great Companion Author Bio Introduction Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. ~ Roger Caras Bulldogs are heavy set dogs with lots of muscles and a wrinkly face. They have a wide head and shoulders, lots of hanging skin, pointy teeth and droopy eyes. Their coat is shiny and short with varied colors like brindle, red, fawn and white. This breed can weigh between 45- 55 pounds. And a full grown female is about 45 pounds. The name of the dog might make you think isn?t too friendly. But the American Kennel Club says the bulldog?s behavior should be: ?equable and kind, resolute, and courageous (not vicious or aggressive), and demeanor should be pacific and dignified...? So this breed is known as patient, friendly and kind in nature. But these qualities are not by accident. Over the years a lot of work has been done to turn the bulldog into a friendlier pet. Today, it is usually well behaved and has a loving nature. It gets along well with other pets and other dogs. It can also become so attached to its owner that it won?t move without them. And when it comes to affection the bulldog is hard to beat. They would prefer to snuggle next to you than chase a ball around the yard. This is one reason why they are called: Couch potatoes! Bulldogs are known to drool and slobber all over you. They snore when they sleep, they can snort often and they grunt even more. And when they walk, they shuffle from place to place. Add a little bit of gas (often smelly) into the mix, and you have quite an interesting pet in your family home! They also have a hard time with commands. To put it simply: They are stubborn as a bull?dog! But don?t worry. There is no doubt their clownish behavior, goofy antics, crazy faces and courageous nature will bring a smile to your face, and a warm feeling to your heart. For these reasons and more, Bulldogs are recommended as a loving companion, well deserving of the title? man?s best friend! Read More

"This Country of Ours: A Classic United States History Book" is a well-known children's history book of the United States by the b...est-selling British author, Henrietta Marshall. This classic book tells the story of America from the start of the settlements to 1912, ending with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. In " This Country of Ours: A Classic United States History Book," Marshall tells a riveting story of America's history that can't help but engage the attention and hearts of young readers. Because she wrote a hundred years ago, Marshall sometimes used words that we wouldn't choose today (such as "savages"). Despite such usages and a few historical inaccuracies, " This Country of Ours: A Classic United States History Book " is a great tool for helping children to understand how perspectives of history change and that points of view influence the retelling. Marshall wrote with an engaging, delightful, and interesting style, weaving in some of the Christian morals and biblical truths that influenced the founders of our nation. Filled with about 100 years of history which is broken down into regions, " This Country of Ours: A Classic United States History Book " remains an excellent read. Read More
