Based on a real black Labrador retriever named Perry and his owner, Sarah Gregory Smith, Looking Out for Sarah by Glenna Lang tells about the relationship between a blind woman and her lead dog. Perry guides Sarah to their favorite grocery store, the post office and then a nearby school. Sarah tells the children, ""Yes, she and Perry once walked from Boston to New York to show the world what a guide dog can do for a blind person."" Lang's warm gouache paintings convey the trusting and affectionate friendship between the two. (Aug.)
