What The Dog Knows ft. Sylvia McNicoll

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Sylvia McNicoll’s most recent book, What The Dog Knew,(Dundurn Press) tells the story of the close relationship between Naomi and her dog, Diesel. The connection is so close, in fact, that Naomi, quite literally, has the voice of Diesel in her head.

A book about family, second chances and the intuitive sensibility of a faithful companion.
