Me Want Pet! ★★★☆☆

Me Want Pet! - Tammi Sauer, Bob Shea

Cute story about a caveboy who desperately wants a pet, but every one that he brings home just isn't suitable for one reason or another. 

 

I liked the colors and illustrations, and I can see how the story could spark discussion/learning opportunities about pet ownership. I can even see how kids would have fun with the "cave language" but I actually found it a little obnoxious. I know it would drive me crazy by the second or third reading.

 

I'll probably knock this one off my purchase list for my neice's kids' library, but will definitely look at the others that are written and illustrated by Tammmy Sauer and Bob Shea.

 

Hardcover picture book, borrowed from my public library.
