The Perfect Dog by Kevin O'Malley -- ADVISABLE

O'Malley, Kevin The Perfect Dog. PICTURE BOOK. Crown Books for Young Readers (Random House), 2016. $17.99.

When a girl is finally allowed to get a dog, she's certain she knows what qualities would make a perfect pet. But it turns out that the perfect pet finds her instead of her finding it.

Both the pictures and text are humorous, and would make for a great whole-class read-aloud. It would work especially well for a discussion on pets or on how you might not know what you're searching for until you find it. Because of the many size comparisons, it would also complement a kindergarten unit on size relationships.
