5Please note: "Hanni and Beth: Safe & Sound" is available in print with beautiful illustrations from Blue Marlin Publications (see www.bluemarlinpubs.com). Blue Marlin Publications generously donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to Seedlings which helps to subsidize the cost of producing it in braille!

5From the School Library Journal - "Hanni, a Seeing Eye dog, explains who she is and her responsibilities as she introduces readers to her partner, Beth, who is blind. Vigilance is stressed throughout the book, and when Hanni talks about "keeping us safe," readers know that she is speaking as part of a team. Although there is plenty of information about what a Seeing Eye dog does and does not do when at work, this is predominantly a story about relationships: Hanni's relationship with Beth, with other dogs, and with the world at large as she navigates her partner through it. There are two sets of notes at the end--one from the point of view of Hanni, which describes her training as a puppy, and one from Beth, which explains how she became blind and her decision to get a Seeing Eye dog. These are accompanied by black-and-white line drawings that are much more playful in tone than the rest of the book. A list of online resources is appended. An upbeat and inspiring selection..." --Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA for School Library Journal
