Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Sandra Boynton, the author of bestselling pick-me-ups like Yay, You! and Moo, Baa, La La La!, comes out with this adorable ode to love between a doggy mom and her pup.

Based on a song from her prior Philadelphia Chickens, Boynton's colorful board book features a mama happily reassuring her youngster: "Snuggle puppy of mine! Everything about you is especially fine!" In her ditty that starts off with the two next to a mixing bowl (and the pup covered in cookie dough), Mama says, "I have a thing to tell you, and it won't take long -- the way I feel about you is kind of a song." With an "ooo" and a big kiss to get it going, Mama sings her pup a bouncy tune that repeats "I love what you are. I love what you do. / Fuzzy little Snuggle Puppy, I love you." By the time the cookies are done, the song is ending, but of course Mama's love doesn't end when the book concludes with an "I love you! [Big smooch!]" and a soothing hug.

An energetic, sensitive read that's sure to get your heart singing, too, Snuggle Puppy is a marvelous way for moms and their little pups to connect. Boynton's focus on basic, unconditional love makes her board book so refreshing, and her breezy, witty artwork makes it fun to look at as parents and children sing along together. You'll be cozily and happily snuggling up with this charmer in hand. Matt Warner

Children's Literature
Originally part of Boynton's larger collection Philadelphia Chickens, this song has been reprised in its own board book. If you are a mother who can sing or croon, then this board book will be lots of fun for you and your little one. The characters are dogs and Mama Dog tells her little Puppy just how much she loves what her little Puppy does. The gender is never specified so the book works for both boys and girls. The song is repeated several times and ends with Mama Dog giving her darling a big smooch, It is funny, warm and engaging. While it is a book that is appropriate for any time of year, the die cut heart on the cover makes it a perfect little gift for Valentine's Day. 2003, Workman, Ages 1 to 5.

Meet the Author

Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, writer, and songwriter. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over forty children’s books and seven general audience books, including four New York Times bestsellers. More than 60 million of her books have been sold—“mostly to friends and family,” she says. She has also written and produced five albums of award-winning children’s music. Three of her albums have been certified Gold, and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, is nearing Platinum. She lives with her family on a farm in New England.

Biography

In the 1980s, it was hard to enter a gift shop without seeing Sandra Boynton's name. Her humorous pen-and-watercolor cartoons of hippos, ewes, and her famous turkeys (you know, symbolizing the human ones in life who can get you down) were emblazoned on cards, mugs, stickers, stationery...and of course, her wonderful, wacky books, the first of which was 1979's Hippos Go Berserk! .

Boynton began her career as a greeting card illustrator with aspirations of theater directing; but having a family changed her focus, and she began devoting herself full-time to art. Her board books, filled with goofy animal illustrations and rhyming verse, are toddler staples. But their appeal to adults is undeniable, and she has also written a number of humor books for the general public.

Given the rhythmic, buoyant style of her writing, it was only natural that Boynton would become involved in companion music to her books. From the '90s on, several of her titles included accompanying CDs, culminating in the 2002 release of Philadelphia Chickens, a CD-book extravaganza written with composer Michael Ford and featuring musical performances by several high-profile stars.

Who knows what lies ahead for this irrepressible force of nature? If there's one thing Sandra Boynton has proved in the course of her remarkably diverse career, it's that she's not lost her capacity to surprise us. (Thank heavens!)

    We prefer the song version over read it to me so we either read it ourselves and sing, or play the sing as an mp3 in the background.

    A sweet book

    A very sweet short book. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't really a "song" but spoken only.

    Daughter loves it

    We loved this book to pieces, literally, before she turned two. Now that it is on the Nook, we won't have that problem anymore. Snuggle Puppy is a sweet story of a mother dog telling her puppy how much she loves him/her.

    The only bad thing is that the author talks throughout, rather than sings the story. So, I used the record option in order to sing the lyrics to my own snuggle puppy. We are both happy with it.

    Highly recommended for Valentines Day or anytime at all. Very cute!

    She needs to sing it

    I love this book and so does my son! However i did not like the author reading it in the least bit. It was boring and weird sounding. The volume was very low too. It did not meet my expectation at all!

    My hero!

    Sandra Boynton is Amazing! When it comes to children's literature she makes it more than bearable for a parent to read. I love all her books!There is nothing I hate more than reading a children's book that rymes but has no rythum or plot.
