Back of Book:
When pets show up with their kids at Maple View Elementary, it’s total chaos! These animals have no respect for school rules, and every class quickly gets out of hand. But why did they show up in the first place? Who said they could come? Could it have been…the pets themselves? It turns out they just wanted in on the fun! Now, if they want to stay, they’ll just have to behave.
I received a copy of this picture book from Random House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
Every student in my classroom would love to bring their pets to school every day of the year. I was so excited to share this fun and vibrant story with my summer kids this year. The story follows a group of children who bring their pets to school. What follows is a hysterical series of escapades. Every place the pets go they cause havoc and confusion. The end of the story is a fun twist that will make readers smile. The text is written in a rhyming scheme that is perfect for beginning readers. The illustrations by Suzanne Kaufman are full of bright colors and details. Suzanne has a gift for showcasing diverse students in her illustrations and this book is no exception. Overall, this is a fabulous story that readers will want to read over and over.
