When author Jean Little travels to schools to share her children’s books she is always upstaged. Ms. Little doesn’t care. Her guide dog is a natural magnet for the kids.
Jean Little, legally blind from birth because of scars on her corneas, relies on her guide dog to help her navigate outside her home. So amazing!
Canadian National Institute for the Blind operates Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. Guide dogs like the one belonging to the author provide independence, companionship, and confidence to legally blind people.
Guide dogs are easily recognizable because of the “working harness” they wear. A guide dog is not a pet. When it is working it has been trained not to be distracted by people, animals, noises, or other distractions.
