I was very pleased with this book, and even went online to find the boardbook edition for our toddler. Being a girly-girl is all well and good, spending time primping in front of a mirror is just something girls are generally taught. This book shows that you can still be a lady and have fun getting dirty and make new friends without being prissy all the time. Children these days have forgotten what it was like to live in a neighborhood where it was safe for all the kids to meet at the local playground and have fun just being a kid, learning social skills from an early age. Children of this generation are so isolated with their computers and televisions in their own rooms that they are socially retarded until they start school. I am 100% for the message in this wonderful, colorful, well thought out story!
This adorable book shows the pampered & perfect poodle with the seemingly charmed life and all she goes through to maintain her image of pink & pouffy perfection. When her encounter with a muddy mutt turns her perfect world literally upside down in the mud, she realized what she was missing & learns that she need not maintain that look of perfection to be happy & have great fun & even allows herself to get dirty on a regular basis!
Beautifully written and illustrated, this is one of the best picture books for little girls. My daughter is not in the age range for this book (she's eight) but she was given a poodle puppy along with this book and she adored it. I recommend this book for ALL little girls with pets.
Poodlena is so happy with herself being beautiful and perfectly made up until fate steps in and she finds out that she can have fun with her life chasing balls in the yard and be beautiful at the same time.
Poodlena is so happy with herself all perfectly made up until fate shows her a different side of herself; that she can also have fun and still enjoy being beautiful. A truly wonderfully illustrated book with a great story.
This book is one of my daughter's favorites. She is only 2, but is very into make-up and her hair...yikes! She relates to Poodlena and her primping. Very sweet and totally girly book!
