A Classic Everywhere

Poky Little Puppy Across the Globe

This picture was taken in Freetown, Sierra Leone, by Cindy McIntire, who is working there as a missionary. She sent it on to her cousin, Diane Muldrow, editorial director of Little Golden Books. The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey, illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, was originally published in 1942, as one of the original 12 Little Golden Books; it has sold more than 15 million copies.
A good book in timeless and ageless, and apparently knows no boundries. Children everywhere have been enjoying this title for 67 years! Have you read it to a child in your life?
Michele, Children's Librarian
