What Pet Should I Get?

Cover: 'What Pet Should I Get?'

Staff Review: "What Pet Should I Get?" by Dr. Seuss


In this newly discovered book by Dr. Seuss, a brother and sister are at the pet store trying to decide what pet to get. Of course they can only have one, but all the pets look like so much fun it’s hard to choose just one. The other problem they face is they have a deadline; Mother and Dad said to be home by noon. This may be a “new” Dr. Seuss book, but with familiar characters, animals, and rhymes it already feels like a comfortable, old friend that generations of old and young alike will never tire of reading over and over again.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book, read-alouds
