ALL KINDS OF PETS
In If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, DON'T! by Elise Parsley, Magnolia, wants to bring her alligator to school for share day, but learns the hard way that it can cause all kinds of chaos at school and the teacher might not be so impressed with your share and might send you to the principal's office after all. Note that Mr. Alligator has taped a construction paper halo above his head (wink).
Strictly No Elephants by Lisa Mantchev illustrated by Taeeun Yoo is visually appealing with muted colors and retroish style illustrations about a little boy who is turned away from a pet club because his pet is too unusual - it's a tiny elephant. This sweet pet story with a moral would be a great read aloud or as a one on one to allow for a discussion belonging and friendship.
For ages 3 & up
