I never really thought about it until recently but my family is an animal loving, pet family. We have a dog, cat, 5 fish and a snail. Our cat and dog are older but they are still very much a part of the family. They sleep in our beds and on their own terms they enjoy being petted and snuggled. Here are three picture books about pets for the animal loving kids in your world.
Ava wants a pet, but Mom and Dad say she’s too little. So when she finds a kitty, Ava decides to name him Itty Bitty and keep him a secret. There’s just one tiny problem: Itty Bitty starts growing and growing and growing . . . until he’s neither itty nor bitty!
From New York Times bestselling author Joan Holub and award-winning illustrator James Burks comes this unlikely friendship story with enormous heart! Itty Bitty Kitty features lively, bouncy text and bold, colorful artwork and is purr-fect for pet lovers parents alike.
Who Wants Broccoli? is a fetchingly fun picture book about a lovable but rambunctious dog who wants to find a home! Broccoli lives at Beezley’s Animal Shelter and loves to show off his bowl-tossing and tail-chasing skills?and especially his great big BARK!? He dreams of playing in a yard with a boy. But when a boy named Oscar comes looking for his perfect pet, Broccoli is hidden away. Will Broccoli find his perfect home?
Hi! We’re Cadence and Emi.
We really, really want a puppy, and here’s our brilliant plan to show our dad we are ready to adopt one!
We are . . .
- Super Persistent!
- Super Responsible!
- Super Smart!
- Super Creative!
Two Girls Want a Puppy is inspired by the true story of two sisters, Cadence and Emi, who cleverly convinced their dad to adopt a puppy for their family. You can follow their story at www.milliesmillions.com and visit them at www.facebook.com/twogirlsandapuppy.
Each of these books are equally adorable. The bright and beautiful illustrations keep my 3 and 6 year old girls’ attention and the cute stories have them asking me to read them over and over again. The only problem I see is that they are now asking for more pets!
