One by one, seven adorable, wriggling puppies are born. Blind and helpless at first, the puppies quickly change from sleepy balls of fur into lively young dogs. Find out more about how puppies develop inside their mother, are born, and grow up. Useful tips on how to care for puppies are included. Mary Morgan's illustrations perfectly capture the universal charm of puppies.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1. Both factual and cuddly, this title in the excellent Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series presents a lot of information through the story of a preschooler whose dog gives birth to puppies. First she listens to the puppies moving inside her dog's belly. Then, with her brother, she watches the seven puppies being born. Over the weeks, she watches them grow and helps care for them until they can walk and run and eat by themselves. The physicalness of the words is echoed in the bright line-and-watercolor pictures that show the child and her family taking care of the puppies, recording their weight and size, watching their eyes open, and playing with them. The combination of pet story and animal data will draw in new readers, and teachers will welcome Otto's suggestions for discussion and simple projects. --Hazel Rochman"
