Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Illustrated in full color. Who are you going to call when you cannot tie your tie, when your chopper will not fly, when your car begins to steam, when your mower spurts and screams? Why, you call Four Pups and a Worm, of course--the most industrious enterprise going. No "quibbles ´n' bits" for this quirky quintet. They tie. They fly. They tow. They even mow. They can handle everything from baby-sitting to back-scratching. In fact, there's almost nothing those Four Pups and a Worm can't do, as beginning readers will delight in discovering for themselves in this catchy, silly advertising jingle-in-a-book.

"Four Pups and a Worm" is a fantastic book. The rhymes are fun and the illustrations do not fail to entertain. Watching these handyanimals save the day over and over is a delight. I have read the book to my neice and goddaughter, and they enjoyed the book so much, I bought them each their own copy. Kids of all ages (including 26-year-olds) will enjoy this fun story. It is off-beat, inspired lunacy. I enjoyed this book!

"Four Pups and a Worm" is a great book to read with children. The pups are funny little dogs who can do almost anything, from tying your tie to mowing your lawn. Kids find this book interesting and fun, and even adults can get a good laugh from the words and illustrations! My nephew loves to "read" along with me, since there a good bit of repitition.

If you love reading to your kids, this book is a must-have. It was always one of my favorites to read aloud to my now nearly grown children and as a classroom volunteer. It flows nicely and is just a really, super-fun book all the way around.

It has a sing songy rhyme to it that makes it a good beginner reader book. I would recommend it.

I chose a 5 star because the story is spectacular. My 3 yr old son loves this book and I enjoy the story. This book started his word recognition and learning to read.
