If your child loves puppies, then this is the perfect book for them. Even my 8-year-old, who is way too old for this book, was immediately drawn to it, making awwwww sounds with each turn of the page. In addition to adorable photos, readers are treated to interesting facts ranging from behavior to breeds. Those factoids are paired with funny text from the puppies themselves.
