The Little Labradoodle: Puppy Pickup Day

Written by April M. Cox and Illustrated by Len Smith

Storyline: It’s Puppy Pickup Day! Follow this tiny puppy with a huge heart as he overcomes his insecurities, builds self-esteem and discovers the power of kindness, friendship and love. His friends include a Pit Bull, cats and a toad/bull frog named Bill who help our little pup on his quest to make it home in time for puppy pickup. Will he make it home in time? Will his family love him even with his limitations and his small size?

Diving right in with Thoughts from a seven-year-old:

Wow, it’s a rhyming book! Those are rare lately. It’s a really good book, I really liked this one, can I have it put on my iPod? [sure] okay thanks, I liked how the main puppy was actually adorable it was cute that he kept repeating his words ‘I must get back, I cannot stay. Today is puppy pickup day!’ He was so worried to get back! He wanted to be adopted! All the puppies were cute, the drawings and art was great. It all looked like real cartoons! It was cool, and I’m happy that it was a very happy ending.

I really enjoyed this book!! It rhymed so it was quite easy to read out loud, there was one or two spots that were slight stretches for rhymes that tripped me up, but otherwise it was fantastically written! I liked the story in this book, I love when kids books include a small lesson. It makes it mean so much more. The illustrations were amazing, absolutely spectacular. Colourful and fun and whimsical. Loved it, I would absolutely recommend this book! Perfect gift for any kid in your life, I can’t wait until the next book comes out!

I rate this book

9/10 for story and 10/10 for illustrations
