The Best Pet Ever review

The Best Pet Ever

A little girl really wants a pet and with some creative thinking and a very active imagination she finds all types of objects that can become the best pet ever. A rock, a glove, a candy wrapper and even a balloon all serve as substitutes! Until, one day, she carefully opens a box to find a real kitten--and he is the best pet in the WORLD!  (goodreads summary)

When the little girl in the story asks her mom for a pet, her mom's reply is "we'll see".  So instead, by using her imagination, this carefree girl finds various objects that she can turn into the best pet.  This cute story is full of imagination and using creativity to come up with something out of the simplest thing.  The wonderfully done illustrations will make you smile and laugh. Especially when the girl gives names to her object pets and describe the things they will do . The book brought me back to my childhood when I would make things out of boxes and play for days on end with it until it fell apart. I love books that promote using the imagination and think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
