It was the first day of spring and the pugs were out wearing parkas. The dachshund who saw them thought it was not a good impression to make on a balmy spring day. She told them if they desperately needed to wear clothes, they should go for a windbreaker. The pugs saw a hound and told him the same thing and he told them the word 'parka' came from Russia. It was summer and the pugs were running on the beach. They told the seagulls that they were pugs wearing parkas. The seagulls wanted to know what a pug was and what a parka was. They told the same thing to Julie whom they met on the beach and she was surprised they were wearing parkas in July. In autumn, the pugs wore the parkas and tried to impress a small bunny who did not seem to care. The pugs were annoyed the bunny asked them why they wore parkas in that weather. Even the raccoon who saw them wearing parkas advised them to have a sense of fashion. Let's read on to find out what happens in winter?
Pugs Wearing Parkas: A Stroll Through the Seasons by Deborah Stevenson is a wonderful story that will walk young readers through the seasons in an entertaining way. Morgan Spicer adds color and charisma to the story and the characters with her bright illustrations. The rhyming verses give the story a good pace and movement and make it captivating. The story introduces children to the four seasons in an interesting way, along with teaching children not to worry about what others think about them, and how others' opinions should not affect them. The book is educational, informative, and conveys good messages to youngsters, which makes it a perfect story for tutors and parents to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions.
