Jim the Wonder Dog
Have you ever felt like your dog understands you? Sam Van Arsdale did. In fact, Sam’s dog understood English, French and even Morse Code! This is the story of Jim the Wonder Dog — a Llewellin Setter living in the 1930s who amazed everyone with his ability to follow any command, hunt like a champion and even predict the future.
Was Jim really super smart or just very well trained? What exactly do animals know and how much of our language can they truly understand? These questions and more are explored through the story of a unique dog’s remarkable life in “Jim the Wonder Dog.”
Episodes in this eight part series, with an accompanying Teacher's Guide, will be posted starting January 5, with new chapters every Tuesday and Thursday, ending January 31.
