I grew up listening to this book, I could almost read it because my mom read it to me so much. I love this book still and I suggest it for any child.

I bought this for my 2yr old son because it was one of my favorites as a child. He does not care for it as much as I did but I still give it a five.

this was on of my favorite books as a child. id buy it for my nookColor, but three bucks is a little much for an old picture book. make it two bucks and you got a deal.

I read this to a 2 year from my nook and from my laptop. He just loves it. I don't think he understands it yet but loves the pictures. Just remember that if you have a nook it with not be in color. But it is on my laptop. He likes it either way. The story is about a puppy that is lagging behind the rest of the puppies and how he gets rewarded for it at first but in the end it gets him in trouble. They keep sneaking out of the yard and not getting dessert because of it. Very cute book with a lesson in it.

The Poky Little Puppy is another Little Golden Book and Gustaf Tenggren overlap, so, of course, I had to buy it.  Also, I had a copy of this book when I was a child, so it is always fun to revisit some aspects of childhood. I'm not quite sure what the lesson/moral of this story is.  Maybe it's just that puppies don't read very well.  Maybe it is that it pays to be poky if you want rice pudding or chocolate custard, but it doesn't pay to be poky if you want strawberry shortcake.  Maybe it's just that puppies don't listen to their mother any better than little boys do.  Whatever the lesson/moral, this book is adorable because of Tenggren's artwork.

This lowly little "golden book" is a classic in every sense of the word. It has been around long before I experienced it and I am 71! I loved it. My daughter who is 33 loved it. We are counting on her daughter who is just over 1 month loving it as well. The story line is instructive. The illustrations are simple and charming. The main character, the pokey little puppy, is prone to doing this his way and ultimately suffering the consequences of doing something "naughty" but forgiven of course. The rhyming and repetitive csdence is forever appreciated by those reading or listening to it....."tumble, bumble, pell mell...." and lifetime phrases that are just simple fun. An investment in a "hard cover" is not going to break the bank for anyone and still a faorite format that is an option with the golden book publishers, thank goodness. Most other popular or newcomers in the hardbook format suggest an "investment" passed over if the choice of a fresh paperback is possible due to expense despite the past preference for gifting yourself or others with "hard cover." You need not be poky about this purchase! Vetta
