    SUMMARY: A great big hug in book form, "Snuggle Puppy" is a year-round valentine from parent to child. It is bright, chunky, a pleasure to hold, and has a die-cut cover that reveals a glimpse of the joy inside before it's even opened. Best of all, it's packed, of course, with pure Boynton: her inimitable language, her inimitable illustrations, her inimitable sense of fun. REVIEW: The rollicking, rhythmical rhymes of this book are ear and eye catching. The refrain just wraps a little one in a delightful squeeze. My two year old grandson asks for this book repeatedly and I find myself with the refrain running through my head when I look at him. Sandra Boynton's books are all perfect as beginning read-alouds for little ones.

    If free love is your thing, Snuggle Puppy is for you. Kids are undoubtedly going to love the silliness of the book, but somebody please send me an audio or video link for how in the name of ZEUS' BUTTHOLE you are supposed to sing the song. Because every time I try, I feel like I'm speaking English for the very first time in my life. It feels so choppy and wrong. I can't be alone in this. It's very off-putting, especially considering that you sing the damn song at least a couple times during the course of this book.3/5 as a book.5/5 as a door stop.

    This is my favorite Sandra Boynton book of all and it is sure to be a favorite with readers of all ages.Momma Puppy tells her "Snuggle Puppy" how much she loves him and "that everything about you is especially fine!"What better way to let the little "snuggle puppy" in your life how loved and special he or she is!

    A friend of mine gave this to my grandaughter. The first time I read it I thought it was kind of silly, but over time I realized this is the perfect book for a very little child. It is short. They book itself is sturdy. Small children love the simple story and it gives adults a great excuse to express their love for a special child in their life.

    Okay, THIS one is our favorite! I made up a tune to go with the words and my grandson runs to get the book whenever he hears me singing it. Gets grandma hugs and kisses every time. :-)

    The first couple times I tried to read this, it felt awkward, because I tried to sing it without any idea for a tune or a rhythm. Likewise, my one-year-old would at first shake his head "no" when he saw me reach for this particular book (to be fair, he shakes his head "no" at everything, including food or toys that he is, at that very moment, accepting from me). I no longer try for a tune and I know a cadence that flows. Similarly, my one-year-old will now bring the book to me, asking me, in his nonverbal way, to read it.The point is, the book has grown on me, and I'm kind of fond of it.An aside: During the first few dozen times I read this, I unconsciously assumed the big dog was a mother, and I semi-conciously chose to view the little dog as a boy (since I was reading the book to a boy). One day, my three-year-old wandered in during the one-year-old's story time and pointed out that the daddy doggy was playing with the baby doggy. Looking through the book again, there is zero indication of either dog's gender, which I kind of like. It's just a parent playing with their kid. I also liked that my three-year-old saw me in a depiction of a parent-child duo having fun. Finally, I'm curious why I assumed the parent was a mother; there's not much that happens in such a short story, so my only hypotheses are, in decreasing order of likelihood, (i) the parent is engaged in a domestic activity (ii) the parent is affectionate or (iii) the author is a woman.my favorite quote: "Fuzzy little Snuggle Puppy, I love you."

    Snuggle Puppy (2003) by Sandra Boynton is a really, really good book. I've had it for a long time; it's one of my favorites, and I plan to keep it forever. I love this book because I love the song. I like to sing it with my mommy and grandma. I like how the mommy dog gives the baby dog a cookie. I think kids should read this book because it is one of the best books ever. My mommy and I love to read it together all the time.

    This review consists of two parts: 1. my review (Mom's) and 2. my son's review of this book (he's 5).SON SAYS: I find this book interesting because the Mommy dog talks to her Baby dog and the dogs stand up on their two feet but they don't actually do that in real life. My Mommy sings this song to me and I like it. They bake cookies in the book and the puppy likes them. The Mommy dog must really love her puppy because she keeps saying it throughout the book. I like the kisses inside the book and I like it when my Mom gives me a real kiss when she sings the song. The big words are really surprising and when the words get big, my Mom sings really loud. The end is very surprising because my Mom sings very softly and then really loudly. My favorite pictures are when the Mommy is swinging her puppy up in the air because it looks like fun; the one where the puppy is standing on his head with a ball on this feet; and, the one where the puppy is jumping in the pile of leaves. I like all the pictures because they are funny. When I was little, this was one of my favorite books that my Mommy read to me.MOM SAYS: This book tells the tale of the love between a Mommy dog and her little puppy. [Ok, let's ignore the fact that usually dogs have multiple pups in one litter.] The Mommy sings a love song for her little puppy while the two are baking cookies. She sings of her love through all the seasons all of which is illustrated in signature Sandra Boynton style: let's just call it unique!I love, love, love any children's books by Sandra Boynton! But Snuggle Puppy is one of my all-time favorites. I love to hold my kids in my arms and sing along to this book. I, of course, sing my own version of the song, but apparently there is a real version of this song. I still sing along to the book to my children who are 5 and 8, but really it's more like they are indulging me by LETTING me sing to them. I would recommend any Sandra Boynton book to parents with kids aged 1 and older, but if you don't really want to sing along, there are other of Sandra Boynton's children's books that may be better: Barnyard Dance (ok, I sing that one too!), Hey! Wake Up!, Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs, and Hey You! are some of our favorites.Come visit us at our website: www.motherdaughterbookreviews.com

    "A great big hug in board book form" says the description. Let me reassure you, my husband likes this book so it can't be as cheesy as it sounds.We started this book with my son when he was about six months old, and it kept his attention well because most of the book is a song. If you care about these things, there's apparently a youtube video to teach you the tune. I think it's more fun to make it up as you go, although then the poor kid might get confused as mom, dad, and nana each have a different way of singing it. My guy seemed to thrive in such diversity though.ANYWAY, at first my son liked the book because there are objects (puppy, ball) to point at, and his parents sing a silly song. Now at two he has rediscovered the book, and he likes it because there are activities to point out (sledding, eating cookies), and the song moves from normal volume, to whispers, to yelling. I have no idea why, but he adores the change to whisper. Also, his parents sing a silly song.Here's why I love the book: the song starts with an "ooo" and ends with a "kiss," and both words are in different colored font. My son has recently started pointing to those words because they stand out, and now recognizes what they are (in the context of the book. I'm not claiming to have a toddler genius here). As a parent, after hours of reading (usually the same books back-to-back), numerous storytimes, and attempts to "model" reading (like he lets us actually read our own book in his presence), it is hugely exciting to see signs of early literacy development. I recommend this book for babies on up, and I recommend it for caregivers who are maybe uncomfortable reading aloud. The song format makes it easier to get over self-consciousness because the reader won't have to worry about intonation or voices.

But it is a cute book and I love that you get to smooch your little ones while reading. It has cute illustrations and bright colors for the little eyes.

    A solid 4* on this one, but I don't know how you can give this 5*. I had some difficulty with this since they don't give you any notes or a tune to go with the words. (It is called "a little love song") I have to question their choice of food in the graphics. They maybe should have gone with fruit like grapes, apples or bananas instead of sugary chocolate chip cookies. (although they were homemade) And when the snuggle puppy mom is swinging her puppy by it's front paws, I just kept thinking of my grandson who had his elbow/shoulder dislocated when his uncle did this to him. Very scary. I was very glad to see all the outside activities being enjoyed by puppy rather than minecraft on some computer. Good choice there. Oh, and the rhyming was pretty good too.

    Our almost-17-month-old thinks this book is the most magical thing she has ever laid eyes on. She loves books, but something about this one just captivates her. She wants to have it read to her over and over, sits down and flips through it, and wants it in her crib with her so she can 'read' to herself. She has a lot of books, some she gravitates to more than others, but she immediately fell in love with this one and smiles every time she sees it. And from mom's point of view, it's pretty darn cute.

    This is probably my favorite book to read to my kids. My daughter loved it from the time she was about 18 months old until she was 4. My son started enjoying it around the same time.It's great because there are certain parts where the kids recognize the letters and know what to say (OOOOOOOOO means it's time to howl). Like most Boynton books, this one is told with a fun rhythm that keeps the kids enthralled and interested. You can read it multiple times and the kids don't get bored with it. If you have young kids this is a perfect book for them.

    This is Charlotte's current favorite book. The whole book is rhyming, and it is supposed to be a song, so both Daddy and I made up our own tune for when we read it to her. Even though there aren't many pages, and there seems to be a higher word count per page than a lot of Charlotte's other favorites, she still loves it. I think it's a combination of us singing it to her, and that it is full of Sandra Boynton illustrations. Since we started reading her this book, Charlotte walks around singing, "Oh, puppy! Oh, puppy!", and requests it by name. Definitely 5 stars.

    Sandra Boynton, Snuggle Puppy! (Workman Publishing, 2003)Another book (viz. Barnyard Dance) adapted from a song on the Philadelphia Chickens album Boynton released in 2002. It's relatively new to the household (a couple of weeks), so I haven't had a chance to see what's going to happen over time, but for the moment it's still high up on the list of bedtime rotation books—the usual cute illustrations, though I need to get round to listening to the song to find out how the rhythm's supposed to work. More good stuff. *** ½

    Boynton brings out yet another cute children's book. This time it's a mother dog talking to her little "puppy." Essentially it's a valentines song meant to be silly and sweet at the same time, which it definitely accomplishes. As my daughter also likes dogs and finds their noises highly entertaining, the song probably got bonus points from her in that department. It basically just repeats the chorus twice with different pictures and directions for how you read it (whisper or loud) to get the message across. Simple, but perfect for small children.

    This is one of our favorite books. I started reading it to my son when he was three or four months old. He is 6 now, and my daughter is 4, and they both still love this book. I made up my own little tune to it and sometimes they just ask me to "sing the Snuggle Puppy" song at random times throughout the day. It creates opportunities for kisses, hugs, and giggles -- what could be better?Sandra Boynton is the BEST author of children's books for this generation.
