Today's podcast 07/31/2015

  • Bausum, Ann. STUBBY THE WAR DOG : THE TRUE STORY OF WORLD WAR I'S BRAVEST DOG Washington DC : National Geographic, 2014 IL 5-8, RL 7.2 ISBN 1426314876 This true story will amaze you. How could a stray dog become a war hero and loving companion? Private Robert Conroy found Stubby wandering around the streets of New Haven, Connecticut. When he was being shipped over to France in 1917 to fight in World War I, he couldn’t bear to leave his dog behind. This was a good thing because Stubby turned out to be a real hero! Stubby had an amazing nose and could sniff out an enemy soldier. He could take the medical teams right to wounded ally soldiers. He even captured a German soldier sneaking forward to the American lines. Besides Stubby’s heroic efforts you will read about the grueling life in the front lines and the other perils that these young men faced.
