5/2: Children’s Book of the Week; Children Make Terrible Pets

Children Make Terrible Pets
by Peter Brown
Lucy has found the cutest critter in the whole forest…it’s a little human boy! She’s calling him Squeaker because he makes such funny sounds, but Lucy’s mom sees the situation differently.

“Don’t you know that children make terrible pets?”

Lucy promises her mama that Squeaker will be her responsibility alone, but for as cute as he is, Squeaker is a very tricky pet! Lucy has to learn that some critters are better kept out in the wild, but she and Squeaker have a good run while it lasts.

Adorable story with a format that reads more like a comic book. Great for ages 4-7.
