Children Make Terrible Pets Review

Children Make Terrible Pets

This book definitely put a smile on my face! Lucy the bear finds a cute little boy in the woods. She is so delighted with him that she takes him home and asks her mom if she can keep him.  Her mom says (which I love) "children make terrible pets" but reluctantly agrees under the condition that only Lucy takes care of him. How many times have we done or said the same thing ourselves?  This book is a turn-around on the responsibility of taking an animal from its home and if you can make it into your very own pet?  This book was a fun read and heart warming! The pictures are cute and the story was filled with good humor. It teaches us a valuable lesson about nature that will warm your heart too. This is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~

  1. Ha! This looks too cute. I can't speak from experience, but I have a feeling I would agree... a child would be a terrible pet!
