When we received our box of Tiger Tale books, the first book the kids picked out was The Best Pet Ever. This was three weeks ago as we left for vacation. I have been asked to read that book over and over and over for three weeks now. This is how much my children love it. J-jo who just turned two last month can recite whole pages to me and absolutely loves the page in which the balloon explodes.
The book is really sweet. Walking past a pet store, a little girl asks her mom for a pet, to which the mom replies, “We’ll see.” So the little girl sees and with her imagination, ordinary things, like a rock, a mitten, a candy wrapper, and a balloon all become a pet…for a day or two. The little girl proves she is ready for a pet though, and by the time her last imaginary pet has popped, her mother is ready with a real pet. The illustrations are cheerful and draw the reader into this humorous story. The repetitive phrases make it a great book to use with a pre-reader.
We all loved it!
Thank you, Tiger Tales, for another great book.
