Blog 207: What Pet should I Get

Synopsis of the book from Goodreads
A never-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss!

This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment — choosing a pet — and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!

Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds.

An Editor’s Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss’s creative process, his interest in animals, and Seussian creatures throughout his work.

My Review
I love Dr Seuss books. I grew up on Dr. Seuss books.

Things that I liked: I liked that they kept with the rhyming scheme that goes along with Dr Seuss stories. I love that it was two little children looking for their first pet. The bright colors and the book cover were wonderful. I was excited to see what they were going to choose at the end

Things that I didn't like: I was disappointed with the ending. The children got to see all of these wonderful animals but they never said what they ended up picking out. With so many possibilities for them to choose, I was wondering what they did choose, only to be disappointed to not find out what they chose. 

Overall: I liked it and it brought back memories from my childhood. I rated this book a 3 out of 3 stars.
