Meyers, S. (2005). Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc.


First off, let me tell you, when you type "Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!" over and over again the word starts to lose all meaning. While "Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!" is by the same writing and illustrating team, I don't think I could handle reviewing that book too. At least not this week. Too much fun with words.

This light and fun poem serves as a good introductory to puppies and how they grow. The illustrations

A book about puppies is a shoe-in for Lyds. She loves it. It goes over opposites as well as puppy and dog information. It's a cute rhyming book that she has us read over and over again.

The essence of puppies wrapped up in playful illustrations and spot-on rhyme.

This is a large book with colorful illustrations and fun rhyming text. It was a great read aloud to my (under 1 years of age) son and he enjoyed looking at the pages and stayed engaged throughout the text, something that works better with some books than with others at this age. I think it would also be an enjoyable book to revisit as he gets a bit older as the repetition would allow him to 'read' with me. As an adult I personally would probably give the book three stars, but have given it four ...more

This is an easy read to read to yound children with rich vocabulary like shredding, tearing, collars, and leashes. I would read this story during an animal or pets themed week. I would use it a dicussion starter to ask the children if they have any pet or know how to care for pets. To make real life connections with the story. The illusrations could be better.

Learning Experience:

I would get a stuffed animal and a dog house. I would have the children practice positional words. Put the dog

This rhyming picture book chronicles the things that puppies do as they grow from eyes-shut-tight newborn to adulthood with new pups of their own. Meyeres’ bouncy verse (“Spotty, wrinkly, shaggy puppies / Bouncy, wriggly, waggy puppies.”) is as playful as the adorable canines in Walker’s layered acrylic illustrations. The repeated refrain of “Here and there and everywhere, Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!” will have little dog lovers reciting along in no time. A fun read-aloud, this would also fit int ...more

I thought this book was entirely too long. I almost want to break it up into chapters: Just Born Puppies, Meeting Puppies, Bad Puppies, School for Puppies and Puppies Grow Up. But really, that wouldn't help. It might be an okay book to share with a child during a lapsit time because the illustrations are a little on the small side and there are multiple on a page, which is perfect for pointing out to a little one on your lap.

This book would be great if you're trying to explain to a young child t

I added this book because it is one of those books that could get children to be excited to read. This would be a great book to show or teach repetition. Children will love to read with you and complete the sentence with " puppies, puppies, puppies!" This rhyming book could also serve a lesson on descriptive words and adjectives

I supper love dogs and does not matter what kind of dogs. I have a dog too. It is over eight years old, and I take it form China. I love it too much.This rhyming picture book chronicles the things that puppies do as they grow from eyes-shut-tight newborn to adulthood with new pups of their own. Meyeres’ bouncy verse as playful as the adorable canines in Walker’s layered acrylic illustrations.

Puppies! Puppies! Puppies is a reminder of how much energy puppies have for getting into trouble, running after all sorts of things, and learning the new jobs that make them a constant, loyal companion for the human owner. Delightful, colorful, action-packed illustrations accompany a book with imagination and puppy-fun.

Used for "Caring for Pets-Dogs" storytime-01/10.

For those of you who like dogs, this is a fun book that watches puppies grow into dogs. They are bad dogs for a long time, but eventually they learn how to be upstanding members of society, which I think is the reason I like the kitten book better.

Rhyming text follows the life of all sorts of puppies from when they are born "with eyes shut tight," through moving in with a new family and "getting bowls and beds and names," to learning how to do things grown-up dogs do.

FREAKIN' ADORABLE. Cute little puppies adorn every page. I tried to use this book to convince my mom to let me get a dog. Didn't work, but she thought it was cute, at least. And that's saying something.

"Here and there and everywhre, Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!"
Well, this book could be dangerous - inciting "Mommy, I want a puppy!" Read to the kids at your own risk :)

A good dog primer for young children: yes, they're fun, but they're work, too.
The artwork is cool, a combination of what looks like crayon and some other medium.

Puppies are literally everywhere in this picture book. How they are born, what they eat and how to cuddle them are reoccuring themes.

Very colorful, with undeniable kid appeal. I wasn't a big fan of the pets having puppies, for obvious reasons.
