Remember when pet rocks were all the rage in the 70s? I don’t, I’m too young. But anyway, you know what I’m talking about right? The perfect low maintenance pet who is also a great listener.
Today’s book by Stephen W. Martin is about a little girl who’s parents have opted for this “perfect” pet.
Charlotte quickly sees that this is not the type of pet she was imagining.
It’s almost perfect, but does this rock really love her back? Kids will be delighted with the surprise ending, and keen-eyed readers may see a reference to a beloved children’s classic, Charlotte’s Web, in the book.
This book speaks volumes about the power of a child’s imagination as well as the power of love. I enjoyed the vintage looking illustrations, but truth be told, I enjoy almost all illustrations.
