Have you ever owned a puppy? If you have, you'll understand this book completely. If you haven't, you may decide on a fish instead. In 14 poems, the authors capture the personalities of puppies perfectly.
What I thought: Dog poems! How great is that? I'm a dog owner/lover and I loved this collection. My favorite poems are "No Name," "I Didn't Do It," "Big," "Pretty Puppy," "She Flies," and "Puppy Dreams." The illustrations are lovely, so realistic. I love the soft lines and colors. My favorite illustrations are "Shh...I'm Here," "No Name," "What Did I Do?," and "She Flies."
Story Time Themes: Dogs, Baby Animals
