    All the Poppleton books are wonderful. There are around 10 in the series. Poppleton is a pig who wears a suit and an English Bowler Hat. He has the goofiest humanized animal friends, Like Cherry Sue the Llama who wears red lipstick! They have the cutest adventures doing dumb things you and your kids will laugh at.

    My favorite author with one of my favorite illustrators = I love Poppleton. Clever but in a way children get (I don't like it when children's books have jokes only adults can understand; it's much better when there are jokes that BOTH adults and children can understand, or if the jokes are just for the kids).

    1st – 3rd gradeThe illustrations are on every page in which look to be done with color pencil. The text is moderately small with about 2-3 sentences per page. Some sentences seem to be repetitive of one another example, “Would you like some oatmeal? So Poppleton had oatmeal with Cherry Sue”. This book is appealing to young readers because it talks about doing new things and changing environments, which most children can identify with, and helping friends in need.Classroom connection:Math/Science- Since the book talks a lot of food I think that it would be a great time to do a food project and make cheese toasties or grilled cheese. It would involve math and science skills to do the recipe correctly.Language Arts- use some of the vocabulary words to discuss meaning and make new and different sentences using the same words.

    Poppleton was an entertaining and exciting children's book. Not only did this story make me smile and laugh, it also kept me interested in what would happen next. Poppleton is a friendly pig that is always occupying his time with a new activity. He loves to read and spend time with some of his close friends such as Cherry Sue. This story teaches children how to handle disagreements with close friends as well as instills the idea that it is very important to always be there for a friend through thick and thin. This book also does a great job of introducing chapter books to young children. It consists of three small chapters that are easy to read and intriguing. Seeing as Poppleton is a pig and his friends are different animals made this book a lighthearted, enjoyable read.

    The series of "Poppleton" books has made my daughter's summer. My three year old loves the idea of "chapter books", but is not quite ready to move onto listening to books without pictures. The humor that Cynthia Rylant uses is perfect for a 3 or 4 year old, but not so obnoxious that an adult can't get through the book. There are a bunch of Poppleton books, so we could check out a stack from the library, but they are short enough that you can read several before bedtime. I have been reading them out loud to my daughter, because she can't read yet, but they are also the perfect book for a beginning reader too.

    Cynthia Rylant has written more than 100 books for children. Her career spans back to 1982 but I only "discovered" her a couple years ago. Sean and I chose Poppleton from the library because it's a collaboration between Cynthia Rylant and illustrator Mark Teague.Poppleton is a gentleman pig who has moved to a small town to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Over the course of the book Poppleton meets his next door neighbor and settles into his new life. For instance, on Monday's he goes to the library to read a book.It's a cute chapter book in the vein of the George and Martha or Frog and Toad books.

    The Poppleton books are charming and I never mind reading them again. They are gentle and humorous and I love Poppleton's neighbor, Cherry Sue, who is a very smart and loyal llama. My son enjoys the humor and the illustrations. The end papers show a birds-eye view of the neighborhood with the characters going about whatever business is in the stories of that volume and my son really loves figuring out what each is doing and how it relates to the stories. It was his first engaging experience of what a map is and how it works. Update: Logan read this aloud 11/14

    This is a great young-reader book, but it is also a perfect fit (at least when Poppleton forgoes invitations for tea and a parade to go to the library) for introverts of all ages. It's witty in a way the kids will get, which for me is a huge plus! (Also read in October 2012)

    I liked this book because it was funny at the end and it was about a pig. I hope to read more books in this series.

    This was a great read aloud for my 2 and 4 year olds. They both still like sweet, innocent stories so Poppleton is perfect. I only give it 3 stars because I don't find the text extraordinary. In my opinion, the best children's books are charming to child and adult alike.

    I didn't like this book because I don't like getting sprayed with water. I also didn't like this book because I don't like pigs.

    Age: Lower Elementary (K-3rd)Genre: Modern FantasyI like this book because there was 3 short stories in one. It could easily be used for journals and reading groups. They weren't my favorite stories, but it was funny and kids might enjoy it. There are more books in the series that can also be used as a continuation of this book.

    We are slowly working our way through Cynthia Rylant's collection of stories. We've read most of the books in the Henry and Mudge, Annie and Snowball, Mr. Putter and Tabby, High-Rise Private Eyes, Brownie and Pearl and the Cobble Street Cousins series. We have read a couple of her longer stories, but I figured we'd check out the Poppleton series next. I'm not sure if we'll ever read all of her stories, but we will sure try!This is a nice collection of three short stories that introduces the character Poppleton and some of his friends. The stories are short and entertaining and good for beginning readers who haven't quite broken into the chapter book realm yet. I love that he visits his library in the second story - we visit ours just as often as he does! The illustrations are fun and the anthropomorphic characters are humorous. We will certainly borrow more of these from our local library.

    Personal Reaction: I love this book for transitional readers! It has a set vocabulary but still will be appropriately challenging for young readers. The story is whimsical and I think young readers will find it funny.Read Aloud: I would read this aloud to kindergarten and 1st graders. I would read this to the class for enjoyment. There is not a specific unit I would attach it to but it is just a fun story that the class would enjoy. I think it would be helpful to read after lunch or recess to get kids back on track and ready to learn.Independent Reading: I would recommend this to kindergarten or 1st grade transitional readers. It is too basic for 2nd grade but it is still challenging for first grade and especially kindergarten. I think all students would like this story because of the situations that Poppleton gets himself into.For Narrative: I would use this story to teach onomatopoeia or repetition. The repetition of the sounds "yoo-hoo!" and many other phrases throughout the book.

    My dog is named Cherry Sue after the llama from this book series. That is how much I love these books. Took one look at my dog and said "She's a Cherry Sue." From silky milk and lavender to shopping for a bicycle with a confusing/alarming number of the color red to choose from, Poppleton is a wonderful series that I still continue to read every once in a while. You'll discover how to live to be one hundred, that sometimes goats aren't the best choice to help you while redecorating, and how to be assertive when a new neighbor is overly friendly. You can get a stuffed animal of Cherry Sue through Scholastic or online. I have mine in my room. Any parents reading this, you will enjoy these books too. Also check out the series by the same author, Henry and Mudge, Mr. Putter and Tabby. Those are also amazing and books I still read today.

    Rylant's Poppleton - a great chapter book series for many beginning readers. In this first book, the stories are of friendship with lessons in etiquette entertwined. My favorite chapter is the first. After moving to this quiet little town, Poppleton gets invited to his neighbor, Cherry Sue's, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Poppleton gets tired of eating with someone every single meal but doesn't know how to tell Cherry Sue. Finally, he blurts it out very rudely only to find out that Cherry Sue was having a difficult time wondering how she was going to quit inviting Poppleton without hurting his feelings. Even as an adult, I can relate to this story.

    I thought I had read this entire series, but I was wrong! I like the dynamic between Poppleton and Cherry Sue; it reminds me a lot of the friendship in George and Martha. Mark Teague's illustrations also add a lot to the story and really bring to life the differences between Poppleton and Cherry Sue. Though I typically think of these as books for beginning readers, my 2.5-year-old is really enthralled with them right now. I'm sure we'll be reading more in the future!

    Cynthia Rylant has excelled at making a very easy to read book very FUN to read and entertaining to the adult listening or reading to a child.She has accomplished a hard thing easy for a child and delightful to an adult.She catches the subtlety of Poppleton's disdain turned friendship for his neighbor, Cherry Sue, with great writing. The terrific illustrations by Mark Teague add a lot of depth to the story.Rylant's books were a breath of fresh air to me while teaching my children to read.

    This book, the first in a series, introduces Poppleton, a friendly and literate pig who likes to eat. I especially liked "The Library" chapter in which Monday is a sacred day for Poppleton because it is library day. I love his rituals and his passion for reading and I believe young children will also find them endearing. Poppleton is a fully developed character that loses his temper, makes friends, and has a clever sense of humor. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series!

    Cynthia Rylant is a giant of the early-reader genre, and no wonder with characters like Poppleton, a town-pig who likes the good life. I ran a first-grade book-club in which we covered this series, and the children were howling with laughter at the antics of Poppleton and his friends Cherry Sue and Filmore. The entire series is fantastic!

    I have not yet met a young child who doesn't love Poppleton (although I'm sure there must be some somewhere). Sweet stories about Poppleton and his friends for early readers that also work well read aloud to younger children. My favorite Poppleton book, but maybe that's just because it's got a story called, "The Library".

    Poppleton was a really good pig. He goes to the library every Monday morning. When he got a new house, he got a new neighbor named Cherry Sue. Then he met someone who was sick. It was a goat that was sick. He drove the goat to his house and bed and the goat liked some cherry stew that Poppleton gave him with a pill inside. [reviewed by a 6 year old, typed by his mama]

    The Poppleton books were favorites at our house when Vivian was around 2 years old. The characters are so charming (especially when read with Blake's special voices!) and the stories are so well-crafted, they stand up to reading over and over again.

    All eight "Poppleton" books are wonderful. Each chapter is a self contained story about Poppleton(a pig), Cherry Sue(a llama), Hudson(a mouse) and Fillmore(a goat). The adventures of these four friends are humorous and endearing.

    The Poppleton series has become a new family favorite. These books include short stories with cute illustrations which offer many opportunities for life lesson discussions with the kids."Poppleton in the Fall" is our favorite of the series thus far.

    All of Cynthia Rylant's early readers are amazing. She gets it. There is just enough repetition, just enough of a plot twist to make things interesting and in my experience, children are so satisfied with their comprehension of the story. The entire Poppleton series is wonderful.

    A colleague of mine enjoys Cynthia Rylant. I haven't read much of hers, but when I saw this I was hopeful. Unfortunately, this did nothing for me. Poppleton isn't a very compelling character, but even so, the three short stories here don't do anything for me. They are lackluster.

    My 8 year old just read this to us in a few minutes. There are three stories .. but my favorite is the one about going to the library. I have to say that I honestly expected more from this book .. but as an easy reader it is a nice sweet uncomplicated book.

    My family really loves this series. (Mom, Dad, 4- and 5-year-olds.) It's like Frog and Toad books, but perhaps funnier and with beautiful full-color illustrations which span the pages. Pretty good for beginning readers, much like Frog and Toad. All the books in the series are great.
