By funny coincidence, two books out of my stack from the library had to do with pets. I'm beginning to believe that there really are books about everything related to my life. Anyway, the first book was called Someday When My Cat Can Talk. It is the story of a young girl who imagines that if her cat could talk he would tell her about his travels around the world. As an added bonus at the end of the book, there is a section that lists facts about the countries that the girl imagines her cat has visited. There are fun facts about England, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Greece, and Holland. This would be a good book for any young child, but it would be an especially nice addition to a homeschool curriculum where the child was studying countries around the world.
The second book I read was Hi Fly Guy by Ted Arnold. A boy name Buzz goes looking for a pet when he runs into fly. He takes him home and decides he will make a great pet. Other people in Buzz's life seem to think a fly for a pet is not a good idea, but Buzz believes his fly, who he has named Fly Guy, is a very smart fly and a wonderful pet. Adventure ensues as they attempt to prove this fact.
Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, my very own early grade chapter book, Fern Valley, the sequel, Return To Fern Valley, the soon to be released Cooking In Fern Valley (fall 2015) and my very first picture book, Quack and Daisy!
