I may be an adult services librarian, but I am also a parent. And while I love my kid, I don’t always love his book choices. (“Really, kiddo? Paw Patrol AGAIN?”) So I was delighted when he recently picked out “Prudence Wants a Pet”. Prudence wants a pet very much. She wants a pet so much, she showers affection and playtime on a variety of inanimate objects. But none is quite the same as a pet. Luckily for Prudence, her persistence pays off.
Both the story and illustrations were charming fun, and it was great to take a break from some of his other favorites for a book we both enjoyed!
This picture book is appropriate for children of all ages.
