My Dog My Hero is a book, which features eight dogs that make it to the finals of a hero contest. This book captures the unconditional love that pets are capable of. These dogs defend, save, warn, fetch, help, call attention, or just love their way into being a hero. This book may cause some

students to become overly emotional. Ultimately, each dog earns a medal, but only one wins the “My Hero” medal. This would be a good book to help students open up and discuss the emotions experienced while reading this book.
