"Can I keep it? It's so cute!" Brimming with laugh-aloud humor, enormous dinosaur children surprise their parents by bringing home a wild menagerie of highly unusual pets! What would happen if your child walked in the door with a pet tiger? Or an elephant, boa constrictor, zebra, or kangaroo? Would you smile?

Perfect for every child who has ever loved or yearned for a pet, this new uproarious book delights readers of all ages as they peek into the mischievous world of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague's bestselling dinosaur series. In the end, children and dinosaurs both learn which animals make the most practical pets, and the best places to find them-- including shelters and pet stores.

Wonderfully silly, here is the perfect book for little dinosaurs who may soon have a furry, feathery, or scaly new friend in the house. If you were as big as the dinosaurs in this book, what pet would be your first choice?

I have been teaching K4 for five years at my current school. I enjoy finding new ways to help my students learn, and love to help them celebrate their successes, big or small, every day. Working in a low income school is both rewarding and challenging. Each day is an adventure, and I encourage my students to try their hardest, be kind and thoughtful towards one another, and support their classmates. I have created a learning environment where my students feel safe and are comfortable asking questions and participating. My third grade teacher was my inspiration to become a teacher, and my hope is to inspire my students to be the best they can be every day.

My class is amazing, and very big this year! I have 10 girls and 15 very active boys that are 4 and 5 years old. They love to read and get very excited when new books are added to the classroom library. Most of my students come from under privileged homes and four of my students speak another language besides English for their primary language.
