by Lynn Reiser, M.D. ’70, clinical professor of psychiatry (Harcourt Books) This is a story for children between the ages of 3 and 7 about working dogs and their jobs. Like the song “Ten Little Indians,” the book helps children learn to count backward from 10 to zero, as each puppy pairs up with a hardworking human—a firefighter, a clown, a lifeguard and a hospital volunteer, among others.
