QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

We Are Puppies by Molly Grooms, Andrey Troshkov

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!  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 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!

Great review! This sounds like an adorable book! While I've never read to my cat, we do have conversations during the day when we're home alone. Love the fur-babies! *L*

Well, I can't really chide you for reading to your dog, I've always thought of my pets as my children...and well, I read to my children, don't I? :o)

It sounds absolutely adorable and one I may get once we are in a place where we can get a dog. My son would love it!

Juju and Sheila: Same to you and your family!

Alexia561: LOL. I knew I wasn't the only one... =0)

The1stdaughter: They are, aren't they? Fuzzy little children....
