We struggled a bit conceptually with this book. My daughter had a hard time following parts of the story - for example in the first chapter she was confused by why the obedience class instructor gave them a whole bunch of treats at the end of class to use at home. I think more pictures that illustrated how the treats were being used to train Aggie would have helped a lot with comprehension for kids who haven't trained a dog before.

Nice stories in this book, but I'm not convinced they are strong enough to be called "exceptional".
