Puggle's Problem (REVIEW)


Puggle's Problem


Author: Aleesah Darlison
Illustrator: Sandra Temple
Category: Illustrated Children's Book
Suitable for: All ages, ideal for 3-7
My Rating: 5 Stars
Format Read for Review: E-book from the author/publisher
Pages: 34

Description: A cute, fun illustrated story about a baby echidna named Pipp Puggle who is getting frustrated that his spines haven't come in yet. All of his puggle friends have their spines and he wants his too. He goes to all of his friends, various other Australian animals, to help him figure out how to make his spines grow. In the end he has to learn patience and his spines do start to grow.

In Short: This is such an adorable story and it teaches patience, grit, accepting yourself and others. I would recommend this book for all small children and as a bed time story. It teaches children "waiting and not getting upset and believing good things will happen."

Pros: This book has everything I look for in a children's book. Beautiful art, an entertaining story, and some sort of lesson or moral. This book is cute and funny while also being loaded with great messages. Pipp works so hard to try to get his spines and he never gives up. In the meantime his mother is encouraging him to be patient and telling him he is fine the way he is. I love that this book introduces a lot of different animals, ones that are not common in my neck of the woods. There is a kookaburra who encourages Pipp to laugh, a kangaroo who teaches him to hop, a wombat, a koala and many more. Pipp the puggle is the cutest thing ever, he is so squishy, I'm sure kids will love him.

Cons: I have no issues with this book.
