Children's Book Review~Poppy and the Fat Puppy


Poppy and the Fat Puppy is an adorable softcover book written by Eli Jay.  The story follows Poppy the Wandering Balloon as he finds a homeless, sad, overweight puppy at the park.  He wants to help his new friend, so he takes the puppy to the vet.  The vet instructs Poppy to start the pup on a healthy diet and good exercise.  Poppy helps the fat puppy get healthy, and has a wonderful surprise for him that will make him very happy. 

I read Poppy and the Fat Puppy to my grandson Daniel, and he enjoyed the story and colorful illustrations.  There are full-page illustrations on every other page. There are only one or two sentences on each page, so this would be a great book for an early reader.  I think this book is a great way to introduce all children to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
