Just One More Pet by Mercer Mayer- ADVISABLE

Mayer, Mercer  Just One More Pet HarperFestival, 2013.  $3.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G. 
Little Critter finds a lost dog in the woods on his way home.  He takes the dog home, but his mom says that they have too many pets, so he can’t keep him.  However, his mom lets him put the dog in the backyard on a leash until Little Critter’s dad gets home.  They decide to take care of the dog until they can find its owner.  While the dog is staying with them it has puppies and the owner shows up to take the dog.  She offers one of her puppies to Little Critter and his parents tell him that he can keep it.  He is excited. 
This is a typical cute Little Critter book.  The story shows that keeping and caring for pets is a lot of work, but they are also fun.  The illustrations and quick story will hold little reader’s attention.
