"Place the cherry pie and the wooden teeth aside and make room for a glimpse of the most human side of our first president. A devoted animal lover for his whole life, Washington in this story allows his compassion for a lost dog to momentarily stop the conflict with the British during the Revolutionary War. Johnny Heller's enthusiasm shines through as he relishes each animal name and recounts the incident with the freshness of a spectator. The fact that Washington gained respect from this event rings strongly in Heller's voice. Young listeners will appreciate this touching look at The Father of Our Country. A.R.
