First published in 1942 by Golden Books
One of the original 12 Little Golden Books, The Poky Little Puppy has sold nearly 15 million copies since 1942, making it one of the most popular children’s books of all time. Now this curious little puppy is ready to win the hearts and minds of a new generation of kids.
I absolutely adored this book as a child, not even sure why? But, it does have very cute illustrations. It is basically about a puppy and his family of siblings/mother. “Poky” puppy is always lagging behind and finding lots of mischief while his siblings are much faster than him, although, I do not believe that they learn the valuable lessons that “Poky” does:)
I read a lot of the reviews on Goodreads before writing this post and I was appalled at the low star ratings for this book. Come on people! This book was published in 1942! Of course back then, we didn’t know that chocolate could kill a dog! Many have purchased and read this book to their little ones over the years and all is well!
All in all, this book is adorable and definitely worth checking out!!!!
Let me know if it was one of your favorites too!!!
