This book is a great read. Without a doubt, I want this book in my future classroom. The illustrations are adorable and are on every single page. They support the text by showing the puppies digging under the fence and also by writing the signs “Don’t ever dig holes under this fence,” to help the readers visualize the scene. The text is simple yet very descriptive, using a lot of adjectives and verbs. For example, “ And home they went, as fast as they could go, over the bridge, up the road, through the meadow, and under the fence.” The main message of this book was to respect your parents and good things come to those who obey the rules.

This little puppy wonders around with lots of excitement. Just wondering about his surrounding.

I really enjoyed this story when I was little, and after reading it to my daughter, still enjoy it now. I feel that it has a good moral lesson behind it and is also a fun read following the adventure of a curious puppy.

I would use this in a literacy lesson when learning about sequencing and story order as it has a very defined pattern to it. I also would use this to teach beginner readers since it has a a lot of small words that are mostly sight words. ( )

I found this book at an antique store for a dollar, and figured I would try it. The downfall is that this seems to be a dated book, but still enjoyable. The main theme of the book is that if you follow the rules you will get rewarded.

I liked the simplicity of the plot. The book is useful for counting numbers 1-5. Also, there is a repetitive wording to the book, which will make it easier for younger readers to process. I liked how the poky puppy was able to outwit his mother and siblings countless times. It makes me think of my own puppies. I also like the illustrations despite them being dated. The circular and robust shape of the puppies are visually appealing. ( )
