Looking for fun dog books for children? Check out Sassafras: The True Confessions of a Poodle Princess and Sassafras Goes to Hollywood by Lynn HIrschfield and Dena Fishbein. These two books are delightful children’s books about a one-of-a-kind pink poodle, Sassafras. Well-written with engaging artwork, most little girls in the 3 to 5-year-old range (though I think these could be fun for a slightly older girl depending on their reading skills) on your gift list will love them and the pink poodle princess.

In the first book, Sassafras the True Confessions of a Poodle Princess, our pink heroine goes from rags to riches to rags again before finding true love. In the second book, Sassie takes on Hollywood and a bad dog trainer.

Sassie has to learn that sometimes all the primping and jewels she can wear are not worth as much as someone who loves her. She becomes an excellent role model to young girls who may be feeling the push to meet certain beauty requirements or get caught up in wanting material things over the more important emotional aspects of life.

I would have loved these books when I was young. Heck, I like them even though I am MUCH older than most of the readers. I can’t wait to share these books with some little girls!
