A dog’s life

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.

  1. One of our favorites. In fact, in a moment of lapsed judgment, I recently discarded my pocket-sized copy. No lie.

  2. Oh, how I loved that book! Partly because my parents never let me have a dog, and partly because my Mom likes to comment how I have two speeds — slow and slower. Good ole Poky!
