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.

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

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. Only 4 stars bcs we wish it was interactive, pls make it an app, Sandra!

My grandson loves this ebook. He calls it the 'ooooo' book & wants to read it all the time.

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!

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!

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.

We love this book sooo much. It is adorable. The only thing I don't like about it is that the author reads it, not sings it.
