This is a cute book and the story and pictures are great. But towards the end of the story, the children are told that the puppy can have one piece of candy. I always taught my children to never give candy to an animal. Just a small amount of chocolate can be dangerous to a dog. I think it would have been better to maybe give the dog a dog treat. This might seem like a small thing, but small children sometimes try to do what they see in books. This is my only complaint and maybe at that point in the book, change it a bit and say that a dog treat is what we give dogs instead of candy.
