The Pet Project
THE PET PROJECT: CUTE AND CUDDLY VICIOUS VERSES by Lisa Wheeler with illustrations by Zachariah Ohora. Atheneum, 2013.
A young girl wants a pet. Her parents advise her to look at his scientifically, to observe, record, and then make a request based on what she has learned. In a series of humorous poems, the young girl observes and rejects all manner of pets including: cows, skunks, monkeys, mice, and a host of others. Pair with "Mother Doesn't Want a Dog" by Judith Viorst. And don't forget to point out the end papers and the reader warning as well.
