What reviewers are saying...

LATHAM LETTER
“So who are these “kids,” Evelyn and Hilary, and how did they come to write this extraordinary book about do behavior and training? Many of you will not be surprised to know that a caring, generous and creative professional name Lynn Loar is responsible for this endeavor. In 2002, Hilary and Evelyn were 9 years old. They participates in SHIP (Strategic Humane Intervention Project), an AAT program that Lynn was conducting… The girls asked Lynn if they could do a project for extra credit and Lynn saw this as an opportunity to develop dog training materials aimed at children… By now three years had passed and Lynn said “You have half a book. Would you like to write a whole book?” They certainly did. So, for 2 more years they met weekly with Lynn and researched and wrote about calming signals and safety around dogs. Evelyn illustrated the key points and made a dazzling drawing for the book’s cover. Lynn negotiated a book contract with Dogwise Publishing and here you have the final product – a first-of-it’s-kind book written by kids for kids. Let me restate that last sentence: this is a book written by kids for everyone, regardless of age. You will be impressed by: the simplicity and clarity of their writing… their wonderful examples of calming signals… their emphasis on gentleness, empathy and safety… their highly readable glossary of terms noted in the text… their “test your knowledge” sections at the end of each chapter… the amazingly expressive drawings that capture the essence of the text. So Evelyn and Hilary have published their first book at the age of 14. Lynn has tried to convey the significance of the book being listed in the Library of Congress. Evelyn and Hilary, however, believe that proof of success is to be listed on amazon.com. Lynn is resigned to the fact that she and the girls represent different generations. Their common goal, however, is that each young author will one day attend the college of her choice. With Lynn as their agent, I have no doubt that will happen.” Barbara W. Boat, Ph.D.
