Back of Book:
Today is Pet Club day. There will be cats and dogs and fish, but strictly no elephants are allowed. The Pet Club doesn’t understand that pets come in all shapes and sizes, just like friends. Now it is time for a boy and his tiny pet elephant to show them what it means to be a true friend. Imaginative and lyrical, this sweet story captures the magic of friendship and the joy of having a pet.
Oh my goodness I love this incredibly well written and thought out picture book. It touches on the importance of treating all people with kindness and respect. The tone of the story is gentle and loving. It shows children that they should always be kind to one another always. The illustrations are enduring and allow readers to fall in love with the story. The text is simple yet powerful and makes it a terrific read aloud for the classroom. A must have for all school libraries and classrooms.
