Don’t Call Me Choochie Poo

Author: Sean Taylor

Illustrator: Kate Hindley

Choochie Poo is a normal dog who is embarrassed by almost everything his owner does: the miniature heart-shaped treats, being carried in a purse and above all, the nicknames and baby talk.

All the dog wants is to play like normal dogs.

When it’s time to leave, little Choochie Poo learns a valuable lesson:

No one is ever alone. And true friends will accept you no matter what.

I’d say this would make a great read for kids pushing back against parental affection and/or kids who may be embarrassed about nicknames. I loved the illustrations in this one – so boisterous and fun. And Choochie Poo has such a commanding presence, right?!
