I Ruff You

By Sandra Magsamen

” I ruff you in the morning when the sun is shining bright I ruff you in the evening when the moon lights up the night I ruff your precious ears and your sweet little nose I ruff your little fingers and teeny-tiny toes!” Preschoolers will love the plush puppy ears that appear on each page. Nothing is cuter than a snuggly puppy on Valentine’s Day, especially one that doesn’t need to be taken out in the middle of the night.
