In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.
I wish I had a pet by Maggie Rudy – This talent of an illustrator makes the most delicate fascinating creations for her books. I am in awe each time I look at her books. The book is quite cute- about a little mouse who needs to be quite thoughtful when selecting a pet. I committed to having a hedgehog as a pet a long time ago and found him to be really disgusting but I loved him and was committed for 6 years… then found a student whose family knew how to care for hedgehogs and passed him over. (I was moving into a very small apartment and couldn’t fit him anymore.) So, agreed, you must be very thoughtful when committing to a pet. The text is simple which makes this book approachable for the very young as well as older kids. Please take the time to discover this creative woman’s work, she’s created some very special books!
Goodreads Summary: “Smartly dressed mice give sage advice on all elements of proper pet care in this photographic picture book.
Who hasn’t yearned for the perfect pet? The mice in this book are hand-sewn and inhabiting enchanting, diorama-style scenes know all about critter care, and they’re here to share wise words about choosing and keeping animal companions.
Whimsical images of the mice with their own petite pets, including bumblebees, ladybugs, and butterflies, complement the warm humor of this extraordinary picture book that’s truly like no other!”
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
