Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
One pup's growth from a toothless, eyes-and ears-sealed, hand-sized ball of fur into a little girl's perky armful of the Norfolk terrier kind. It is hard to resist puppies, and the photographs combined with Ms. Cole's text make this a "warm and fuzzy" choice for preschoolers.

PreS-Gr 4-- Clear, crisp, full-color photographs make this revision (Morrow, 1973) a charmer. As a little girl anxiously awaits the birth of puppies by the Norfolk terrier next door, a story unfolds. The puppies' arrival and first few weeks of life and development are shown and described in a simple narrative that is accessible to very young audiences. From the attractive cover with puppy peering out, past bright red endpapers and colorful photos inside, the fun is just beginning when, as the book ends, the little girl can now take her eight-week-old puppy home with her. While the text is only slightly different, the engaging photographs are all new--the previous edition featured black-and-white photographs of miniature dachshunds. Thus, the new My Puppy Is Born will captivate dog lovers. --Carol Kolb Phillips, The Library, East Brunswick, NJ
