My 3 1/2 year-old twins love Paw Patrol and this show is great because boys and girls can watch and enjoy it together. Plus, it's about a bunch of cute pups who help keep the community of Adventure Bay safe for everyone! My kids have been tolerating slightly longer stories during the day and before bedtime and I feel the Little Golden Books are perfect for this because they each take approximately 5 to 10 minutes to read, depending on how much we discuss the story, so we are able to read a few of these each night. I saw that All-Star Pups! was coming out and decided to surprise my kids with a new story.
The book All-Star Pups! is based on the episode "The Pups Save a Basketball Game" (taken from the introduction page of this book). The story starts out with the pups playing basketball and Mayor Goodway (Adventure Bay's mayor) accepts a challenge from Mayor Humdinger (the mayor of Foggy Bottom) to play basketball against one another. She forgets that Adventure Bay doesn't have a team so the Paw Patrol steps in to save the day. The story continues with the basketball game and I think it's a good example of sportsmanship for young children.
As usual, since this is part of the Little Golden Book series, the book is hardcover with paperback pages and the nice gold binding. The book measures approximately 6 1/2 inches by 8 inches and is the same size as other LGB and it fits in nicely with our collection. This story is about 24 pages long. Please note, this story does not contain Everest, the newest female pup of the Paw Patrol.
My kids already love this story and we've read it several times! I feel this story is very safe to read for young children and we always enjoy reading about the pups before my kids go to bed. I really like that Paw Patrol is appropriate for both boys and girls, since I have boy/girl twins, and that makes it a bit easier when we decide on something to read or watch. Since it talks about basketball, it's also a good story for kids interested in sports. If you are looking for a book for your Paw Patrol fan, I recommend All-Star Pups!
