About this Book

This is the story of how a puppy is born. Fine appealing photographs show the birth of a miniature dachshund and record the first eight weeks of his life. The text, written from the point of view of the child to whom the puppy has been promised, is simple and lively.

Through the child's eyes we see how the puppy is born in an amniotic sac, still attached to the mother by the umbilical cord, with his eyes shut and his ears plugged. We see how the mother licks him clean and dry, how she cares for him and the rest of the litter, how he learns to suck, to crawl, to walk. Watched eagerly by the child who is to own him, the puppy develops steadily, from a frail, helpless creature to an explorer full of life and gaiety, until at last he can leave his mother and go to his new home.

Margaret Miller's photographs, and Joanna Cole's companion text, are simple, honest and reassuring. Designed for the youngest readers, this book presents the universal story of birth and growth.

Reviews and Comments

"As well as being a good book to read with young animal lovers, My Puppy is Born also can explain the subject of birth and growth in an uncomplicated way and should be an unvaluable aid for parents and teachers of four to sixes who are wondering how to approach this sensitive subject."
Nursery World

"... splendid pictures and matter of fact sex education combine to make this a winner for the junior classroom shelf."
The Teacher

"This book must be read by all children to learn and understand miracle of birth."
