Before Memorial Day I posted some books for pet lovers to read over the holiday. I’ve learned about some children’s books that are great for families with children that are thinking about getting a pet. One of my networking partners
of And Thou Shalt Read, pointed these out to me. A book that teaches responsibility for a pet is When Life Gives You O.J. by Erica S. Perl. This is the story of an 10 year old girl who wants a dog more than anything. Her grandfather suggests she can show her parents she will be responsible by caring for a practice dog that is an orange juice container on a leash.
Another book that teaches lessons on responsibility is Koko’s Kitten, by Francine Patterson, the true story of a Gorilla that takes care of a kitten like it is her own. Do you have a favorite kid’s book about pets? Let us know.
