“We’re Getting a Pet! captures that special childhood moment when a child adopts a new pet. As she proves once again, Sue Fliess is a master of the gently-humorous, fast-paced rhyming text that is so appealing to little ones.”—


A young boy’s family is ready for a pet. But what kind of pet should they get? In this lively read-aloud, a trip to a rescue shelter leads to just the right kind of pet for the whole family. It’s an older dog who’s already trained. . . and ready to be a best friend.
