Best Dogs in the News

By Sara Hoffmann

The Best Dogs Ever (cover pictured), Lerner’s brand-new series about popular dog breeds, has made publishing news! It appeared in a recent article in Extra Helping, School Library Journal’s online newsletter. And it’s all because of the wonderful story behind the books’ dedications.

As the article describes, Elaine Landau, The Best Dogs Ever author, decided to dedicate the Best Dogs books to some very special people. She dedicated each title to an outstanding librarian. Each of these librarians has made valuable contributions to the field, and it’s great to see them recognized. I also couldn’t be happier to see the series—and its very talented author—get a nod in Extra Helping. Developing the Best Dogs books was a two-year labor of love for all involved, so it’s gratifying to know that the titles are making an impact.
