The Poky Little Puppy (Step Into Reading) by Kristen Depken -- OPTIONAL
The classic tale of a curious puppy is adapted for early readers, with an abridged story and simplified text. While it is nice for young readers to have ownership over what may have been one of their parents' favorite stories, it seems to have lost some of the original's heart when it lost words. Loyal Poky Puppy readers will likely be glad to see that many of the illustrations were retained, however.
