"The full-color, full-bleed photographs are the book's best features. Almost every spread captures a dynamic dog training scene amid beautiful snowscapes."--School Library Journal

"Present-tense narration paired with dynamic color photographs puts readers in the moment with Piper ... A peppy introduction to a lesser-known type of worker dog." --Kirkus Reviews

"Rusch emphasizes how the training of the dogs is both hard work and fun--a point made clear through photographs of Piper dashing through the snow, chewing on toys, and embracing Cohen."--Publishers Weekly

"Avalanche Dog Heroes is a fine addition to any collection. Display it prominently and it won't sit."--ProseandKahn

"Of special note is that with "Avalanche Dog Heroes", children will also learn the warning signs and conditions that cause an avalanche, the four types of avalanches, and the basics of avalanche safety, making it an especially welcome and unreservedly recommended addition to family, elementary school, and community library Pets/Wildlife picture book collections."--Midwest Book Review

"With great pictures, cute dogs, and something unique to learn about...this book is a winner for winter!" --The Delphos Herald
