Everyone likes pets. Most people have had a pet at some point. Most people also know what their pet is. It is usually a dog, cat, lizard, fish, or the like. In Heather Macht’s book, Rex the…We-Don’t-Know, Dad, Mom, Raven, and Max fall in love with a colorful pet at the local pound. When they asked what the strange-looking animal was, the employee could only say, “We don’t know.” It did not matter what Rex was because the family fell in love with the little fellow. The parents and children did not know what they were getting into. Rex did not act like a regular pet. He ate differently, and when he got upset, his behavior was the strangest that one could imagine. Read this book with your children and enjoy the antics of Rex. Learn that as long as you love, different is good.
Chase Jensen does a beautiful job of illustrating Rex the…We-Don’t-Know. His illustrations capture the heart and soul of the words by Heather Macht. Rex is a strange mix of different animals. He breathes fire, which is nice when he cooks breakfast or grills hamburgers. Rex is very unusual and has a horn like a unicorn. You will never believe where he likes to sleep. I can tell you that he does not sleep in a doggie bed. What do you do with a strange creature like Rex? Do you take him back to the pound and say that you made a mistake taking him? Join Max, Raven, Mom, and Dad as they learn that love accepts and overcomes weird behavior. This is a fun and entertaining read.
