We are smack dab in the middle of National Children’s Book Week…
What is your favorite?
My fav is The Poky Little Puppy, a children’s classic from Little Golden Books. And I’m not the only one who liked it. In 2001, it was the all-time best-selling hardcover children’s book in the United States, having sold nearly 15 million copies.
Of course, I didn’t know that back then.
I liked Poky because of his funny name and cute — if rather ginormous — head. I also liked his independence. In the story, he lags behind his brothers and sisters and ‘does his own thang.’ Sometimes it works to his advantage; other times it gets him into trouble.
Wow. Just call me Poky.
