Hi, there! *~waves~* I trust that everyone is enjoying their New Year's Eve celebrations, or at the very least has plans of some sort for later tonight. My family....we'll be home....partying like it's 2-0-0-9! (Oh wait, it still is....moving on...) I wanted to squeeze in at least one more review before the new year begins, thus this one is a bit on the short size, but definitely not on heart! This book found its way into my home by peeking out of the bargain bin at our local bookstore. The cover was too cute...and could...not...be...resisted! Today's book of choice is....
We Are Puppies
Molly Grooms & Andrey Troshkov
This charming book tells the story of two curious little puppies and their mom as they learn who they really are. As with most youngsters, the two little pups are anxious to play and explore. Mother dog feels they need to learn a few important lessons in being a "big" dog before they adventure out too far. With wisdom and kindness, she sets out for the day with the little ones in tow to help them on their way to becoming all the puppy they can be. With warm illustrations sure to tug at any animal lover's heart strings, readers of all ages can enjoy this short yet sweet "tail". (I know...play on words, but I just couldn't resist!)
Originally, I bought this book to read to my one little dog, Ashley, (I know, "reading to a dog" sounds crazy, but it was for me just as much as her...) when she was still expecting. That time has come and gone (pups are doing GREAT!), but the story still begged to be read. My favorite sentiment in the book is actually summed up in the last two pages. It lists all the wonderful things that dogs are, from sniffers to chewers and everything in between, ending in the echo of the title. Recommended for younger readers, or those just wanting a quick reminder of the joy of puppy-hood.
Until next time....okay, maybe next year....happy reading!
