Children and adults alike will fall in love with Pippin (and Nigel, too!). They are lovable pups who are beautifully illustrated in this fun read. I recommend it for birth to around 7 or 8 to capture all of the lessons this book has to offer. Overall, I loved the lesson that we’re all unique and have our own abilities and personalities to offer the world. The pups are adorable and have individual personalities that really speak to kids. The series will definitely be a favorite one you start it with your children. That’ll Do, Pippin gets a 5 out of 5 from our house!
I received a complimentary copy of the book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
