Reviews for The World According to Dog

*Bulletin (starred review)

"Sidman offers a score of fluid and lyrical poems . . . sprinkled with heartfelt essays by young people . . . beaming with fresh-faced talent of their eager young authors, providing moving testimony to the value for humans of the human-dog relationship."



"Even teens who prefer cats will appreciate Sidman's tight lines, sincere emotion, and clever humor as she pays homage to a creature she loves."


School Library Journal

"Sidman's poetic observations of beloved pets . . . are rueful, contemplative, and sensory as they comment on canine behavior: The pacing and flow of her poetry are sure and her appreciation of her subject is astute."


VOYA  (Amanda Lang, Teen Reviewer)

"I think that this book is fun because the poems offer a different look at the relationship between pets and teens . . . This book would be best enjoyed by dog owners, but even though I do not own a dog, I still really liked it."
