Almost My First Pet

This children’s book describes a conversation between a little boy named DJ and his mom. DJ really wants a pet, and he’s decided that a fish will be the perfect first pet, but his mom assumes he is asking for a dog. Read along to DJ's vivid imagination as mom instructs him in the steps he needs to take to care for his pet.

The premise of this book is hilarious, and it definitely captures the imagination of children. DJ is a well-meaning kid who intends to take care of his pet, and he really tries to understand how all the things his mom asks him to do could be done with a fish. His innocence will appeal to adults and children as they remember funny times when they were in conversations that became disconnected like the one between DJ and his mom.

What a cute book! My kids love this. I like that it is a funny book about miscommunication. I hoped DJ got his fish in the end.
