Looking Out For Sarah

by Glenna Lang

Perry a yellow labrador tells about a day in his life. Where he goes with his owner Sara to the park, to the post office, to a diner, and to a school where Sara tells about guide dogs. Perry also remembers the time Sara and him walked from Boston to New York to show what a Guide dog could do. the most interesting books on guide dogs that I've ever read, Looking Out for Sarah is a truly splendid book with some of the loveliest illustrations I've ever seen. Their purity will draw readers to a very important subject, often ignored by the writers of children's books--the skills, perseverance, and even the heroism of people who manage to do without sight, and the dogs that help them do it. This subtle masterpiece should be required reading everyone old enough to turn pages. --Elizabeth Marshall author of The Hidden Li Looking Out for Sarah is a beautifully told story that will fascinate young listeners and readers. Glenna Lang shows in delightful illustrations and words how a blind person's life, every hour of every day, is enriched by the unique bond that develops with her guide dog. --William D. Badger, President, Guiding Eyes for the Blind
