KIRKUS REVIEW

A sweet and heartwarming true story about a little white dog, who curled up on the beds of very sick children in a Children’s Hospital in London and healed them with his warmth and love. Dr. White’s tail thumped, his black nose snuggled, he licked sick hands, and critically ill children recovered. Goodall provides a note about pet-assisted therapy and why she found the story of Dr. White important enough to write down. There is suspense in the story; a health inspector bans the white furry dog from the hospital until his own daughter becomes seriously ill, then Dr. White returns to the scene. Litty’s watercolors beautifully illustrate this tale about the healing power of love. (Picture book. 5-8)
