I read this book to my kids, which ages range from 8-12. This is not a book for children of that age range. Hush, Puppy! is a really great book for preschooler age to about kindergarten age. The writing is perfect and the plot of the story fits perfectly for the age range of a preschooler to about kindergarten. And the illustration that are done in this book by Beth Young are GREAT!

It's visually appealing and I think it'll be something that children will want to look at.

The audio version has the perfect storytelling voice. It's told in a good pace and the narrator sounds really welcoming. I highly recommend l
