This book is about a dog,Grace, that desires to be a guide dog for the blind.After not meeting the height requirement, Grace ends up saving a boy from running in the road after a ball when a fire truck was coming. A deaf man witnesses this act and immediately wants Grace to be a seeing eye dog for him.Grace has many trials and failures, but in the end she overcomes many obstacles and is able to be this man's personal seeing eye dog.
This book could be used for numerous lessons in the classroom, but I would use it to talk about persistence and also use it to inform my students of why these kind of "jobs" the dogs have are very critical to a blind or deaf persons life.
