It’s a Puppy’s Life
by Seth Casteel
(March 20, 2018, ages 4-8, $16.99)
Since its debut in 2012, millions of people around the globe have fallen in love with New York Times best selling photographer Seth Casteel’s iconic and irresistible photos of dogs diving into swimming pools (Underwater Dogs, Little Brown). Seth has upped the cute factor with his picture book, It’s a Puppies Life, featuring gorgeous, never-before-published photographs of a day-in-the-life of a puppy.
The photos and light text that accompany them capture the innocence, fun, silliness and personality of each pup as they sniff flowers, snuggle in blankets, play tug of war, make a serious MESS, get a bath and then sleep, sleep, sleep.
Although written especially for young readers, this book is certain to appeal to the puppy-obsessed of all ages, from kids, tweens and teens to hipster parents and doting grandparents. A great pick for National Puppy Day on March 23rd!
My Review of It’s a Puppy’s Life
The photos in It’s a Puppy’s Life are adorable! Who doesn’t love to look at cute puppy pictures? Now, you can share these pictures with the littlest members of your family. The text is very simple, and soon your little one will be “reading” this book to you. I know you and your child will love it!
If you are thinking of adding a dog to your family, please remember: adopt don’t shop! I keep seeing so many puppies for adoption right now. When you get a puppy or a dog from a local shelter, you are saving a life. When you “buy” a puppy, you may be getting one from a puppy mill. Unless you are planning on having a “show dog,” please visit shelters before pet shops.
