KIRKUS REVIEW

 The author of Mom Can't See Me (1990) again presents her experiences as a blind person through her daughter's eyes and voice. Now 12, Leslie describes the family's grief after the death of Mom's guide dog, her decision to get a new dog, the training at The Seeing Eye, and ``Ursula's'' adjustment once she's home. Along with details of the dog's training, valuable information is implicit here, including the range of tasks Mom does at home and her capabilities and limitations with and without a dog. Ancona's many, crisp b&w photos make a fine complement to the brief but informative text. (Nonfiction. 6-10)
