This is a cute book about a puppy. It has enough interaction to keep their attention and has a sweet ending.
This is a quick rhyming read about a girl and her puppy, and all the activities they do together. From playing outside to taking a bath to getting into bed, these two have a wonderful time together and the puppy is obviously happy just to be loved. This is a rhyming board book that shows parallels between people and pets.
