Reviews - What do customers think about The Poky Little Puppy (Little Golden Book)?
Timeless Masterpiece Mar 30, 2008
We bought this for our first grandson. The book was my favorite childhood book and I had each word memorized. We want our grandson to learn to "stop and smell the roses" in life and this is THE BOOK to suggest that.
This is a classic, but... Mar 19, 2008
But it's not my favorite. The illustrations are lovely and soft. The story, however, is a little lengthy for my taste. I owned it as a child; I own it now. Who doesn't?
Now, where in the world is that Poky Little Puppy? Jan 28, 2008
This is one of those baby books we all grew up with and still remember.
The precious illustrations and repetitive refrain make it a perennial favorite! This is a great book to share with the children in your circle.
A cute classic, but may send mixed signals to kids Jan 19, 2008
I bought this book because I had happy memories of reading little golden books when I was a child. The story is well written and the pictures are very cute. The kids love the repetitive nature of the story. But I had some concerns after I read the story. The story shows that the puppy is rewarded for being "poky" the first four iterations of the story, and then punished the last iteration after the other puppies catch on to what he's been doing. So the message it seems to send to kids is "if you misbehave, you can get away with it by letting others take the blame and you can even get a reward if you're careful about how you do it." My 3 year old has read it many times, and I don't know if its impacted his behavior. But it just left a bad taste in my mouth.
