Book Review — Poodlena
Categories: Books -- Picture


“In a big city high rise
On the very top floor
Lived a pink, fluffy poodle,–
Poodlena Pompadour.”

Thus begins a delightful look into the world of a pampered poodle in the city. The rhymes are fun but what little girls really love are the illustrations. Poodlena with her mountain of pink fluffy hair gets prettied up everyday for her walk. She goes to the dog park to be seen but never plays with the other dogs. Fortunately, one muddy day she gets knocked down and discovers the joy of getting a little dirty. From then on she primps less so she has more time to play. More time to play, a good lesson for all of us!
