This Little Puppy is another in the Alligator Tales board book series, beautifully illustrated by Nora Hilb, and presenting individual poems by popular Dennis Lee (This Little Puppy is actually a new one by the beloved poet). It does a wonderful job of explaining the needs of a very small dog to a very small child.

The small canine is introduced as it's discovered in a box on the sidewalk: 'This little puppy goes bow-wow-WOW. / This little puppy wants to walk right now. / This little puppy says it's time for chow, / And this little puppy needs a home.' Children enthusiastically respond that they'll walk the puppy, they'll feed and care for it ... and they'll give it a home.

Young readers will enjoy the repetition and sing out the verses - but parents beware, they're very likely to demand a little puppy of their own right now too!
