Yesterday was my eldest daughter's birthday; she is now 4 years old. It's kind of crazy to think that 4 years ago this little girl came into the world on a Friday the 13th, but she's been anything but nightmarish. My daughter truly is a good good girl with one of the kindest sweetest hearts I know. Sure, she has her not so stellar moments aka toddler like moments, but she really is a huge blessing in our lives.
When she turned 1, my daughter picked If You Give a Mouse a Cookie for her birthday book. It was perfect for her b/c she loved cookies.
This year, my daughter has picked Paulette the Pinkest Puppy in the World by Tim Bugbird for her birthday book. It's the perfect book for a toddler girl that loves pink; if your child also loves dogs than it is exceptionally perfect.
My daughter picked this book b/c it is pink and has an adorable picture of a pink dog on it. She also picked this book b/c our paperback version came with a cute little heart necklace that as the girly girl she is she completely adores it. Well done publisher including the necklace to solidify the book selection by a child.
I give Paulette 4 out of 5 stars. It's a cute book with good rhythm and fun pictures. It also has a good message about learning to love who you are, your individualism, and your own strengths rather than hiding or wanting to be like everyone else. It's a book that my daughter thoroughly enjoys. However, it did lose a star b/c the writing isn't as stellar as I'd expect/hope for from a published book. At times it feels a bit choppy and disrupts the rhythm.
All in all, Paulette is a good book, just not quite a 5 star book. Though, it is up there with Fancy Nancy and Pinkalicious attracting girl readers.
For your convenience, Amazon had the following book description:
"A charming story about Paulette the pinkest puppy, who learns to celebrate the things that make her unique!
Paulette the Pinkest Puppy is the heart-warming tale of Paulette the puppy, who is born with a very unusual feature – her fur is completely pink! Paulette struggles with being different until she and her puppy friends realize they have more in common than they thought. "
Have you read this book? What did you think? Most importantly, what did your child think?
Happy Paulette the Pink Puppy reading!
