What Pet To Get? by Emma Dodd is a cheerful, silly book that I think is great for storytime. Jack’s mom tells him he can get a pet, then she has to think quickly when he starts suggesting large and impossible creatures like a T-Rex and a polar bear. I liked Jack’s mom because she never says “no.” She encourages his imagination and gives reasons that make sense to him (a polar bear wouldn’t like their central heating). When he finally gets a pet, his choice is a BIG surprise. The page layout feels larger than life, and the colors are vibrant but don’t interfere with the story.
