I Want a Pet by Terri Kelley is a delightful rhyming picture book, which introduces children to the concept of responsibility. The book can also introduce them to problem solving, thinking skills, and decision making.
Books designed and written with rhyming words and colorful illustrations are often favorites of children, as well as ones with a story line about pets. Almost every child wants to have a pet. The author describes many different pets and the responsibilities that go hand in hand with that pet. Including the responsibilities a child would have with each pet, the book teaches the child to look past his or her excitement of having a pet and to think about what their job as the owner will be. For example: one of the animals the author talks about the boy having as a pet is a dog. The boy is initially excited until he learns what responsibilities he will have taking care of the dog.
Terri Kelley's I want a Pet book can be used by parents and teachers alike to reference in a classroom or at home when wanting a pet comes up in conversation. This book can be used for discussion, writing prompts, art projects, creative thinking, and early reading development. The illustrations and easily understood rhyming words make for a great story time book for children to read to themselves or get read to by a parent or teacher. This story can be enjoyed by children of all ages.
