Poppleton Forever is the fourth book in Cynthia Rylant’s Poppleton series. The book contains three short stories. The first story is Poppleton and his friend, Cherry Sue, trying to help make Poppleton’s sick tree better. The second story is Cherry Sue helping Poppleton feel better when he is sick with a cold. The third story is where Poppleton gets frustrated with his friends while they are hanging wallpaper. At the end of the story, Poppleton is ashamed for getting upset with his friends and re ...more

Three stories about Poppleton and his friends.

Poppleton plants a tree and does everything right to help it thrive, but it still withers. It's only when someone suggests he hang a bird feeder on it does the tree come back to life.

Poppleton has a cold and he friend brings him some oranges. Every time he peels one, he sneezes and sends the orange into an odd place. Then his friend shows up with some eggs to help him feel better.

Poppleton is trying to put wallpaper in his kitchen with the help of h

WALT Nelson and I found this series at the library this summer. I am a huge Cynthia Rylant fan (my favorite children's book of all time is "The Relatives Came") so we checked out the whole series...and they are delightful. Sometimes the beginning readers are repetitive and painful to read, lack in both plot and grammatical correctness, but these are breathes of fresh air.
As an added bonus the short stories focus around some of WALT's current interests...planting trees, camping, attics,and shoppi

The Poppleton series is a great chapter book series for beginning readers. They are great stories of enduring friendship. My favorite chapter in this book is Wallpaper. After learning they each have a body feature (Hudson the mouse is too short, Fillmore the goat likes eating paper, and Cherry Sue the Llama gets her fur stuck in the paste) that prevent them from helping Poppleton wallpaper his house, Poppleton's three friends agree to change. Poppleton loves his friends the way they are so he sw ...more

You really can't go wrong with Cynthia Rylant. This is a cute book with three short episodes. My eight year old commented that the chapters didn't go together. "First he has a tree he is trying to grow, then in the next chapter he has a cold and doesn't care about the tree, and in the last chapter he doesn't have a cold or a tree." She is right; the three short stories have only characters in common, but they are funny short stories! Entertaining enough for adults to read a couple of times to ch ...more

I have not yet met a young child who doesn't love Poppleton (though I expect there must be some somewhere). Sweet stories about Poppleton and his friends for early readers that also work well read aloud to younger children.

Three stories: one about a dog wood that wants a bird feeder, one about Poppleton trying to peel oranges while sneezing and one about Poppleton trying to hang wall paper with help from his friends (a mouse, a goat and his next door neighbor llama).
The chapter where Poppleton gets his friends' help with wallpapering is one of the funniest things that my younger son and I have ever read/looked at together. All of the Poppleton stories are good for beginning readers, and fun to read aloud, but this is my favorite.

MCL. I don't think you could sneeze an orange across the room.

The Poppleton series is a favorite of my five year old son. We have read the over and over. He loves the structure of each story and feels like he is reading a chapter book!
Like it, but it left us feeling like it was wanting in some way.

This was a great book! I definitely would recommend it for everyone to read!

Poppleton Forever
Rylant, Cynthia
an easy reading story
I remember reading this, but not what it was like, hence the three stars, please do not take that level as my complete review, rather let it spur you on to read it! With children if you have them!
Three short stories featuring Poppleton and his friends. My 1st grader really liked it and it wasn't too hard for him to read.
All by herself!
Read this to L years ago. Update: L read this aloud 11/5. Needed no help.
