Toby is a yellow labrador very dedicated to his owner, a young boy who is blind. He happily tells one of the neighbourhood dogs all about his "special boy," the wonderful treatment he receives as a seeing-eye dog and the responsibilities he has for his young owner. This story will help children understand the commitments of pet ownership as well as teach them an appreciation for guide dogs and the work they do.
The Animal Tales series teaches virtues to young children through charming stories of animals. Each story deals with a situation that the animals must solve, often with a moral at the end of the tale.
