Ruffles and the Red, Red Coat

We rated this book:


Ruffles likes to howl, scratch, eat, dig, and do lots of other dog things. But when Ruffles gets a new red coat, he does not like it at all. Not. At. All. He should wear it when it is wet and cold out, when it rains and makes fun puddles. Ruffles loves puddles. Ruffles wriggles out of his new red coat, and he plays in the rain and puddles without it. And when his good friend Ruby comes over wearing her new blue coat, they play together in the puddles, splashing and jumping until each puddle is splashed away. Ruby shakes the wetness off her coat, but Ruffles is cold, wet, and sad. Finally Ruby leaves. Can they fix things and get back to playing?

David Melling has created a terrifically cute character that kids will relate to, especially his stubborn streak. It’s that stubborn streak that gets him in trouble. Sometimes having to change the way we do things is hard for kids, and they can be stubborn about it, but maybe Ruffles’ story will help ease simple transitions. The illustrations are perfectly adorable and will help to keep little ones engaged through the whole book. It’s a good one!
