I Want a Pet! Band 05/Green by Kaye Umansky

`I want a pet! I want a pet! I hope I like the pet I get!'When a boy goes to the Strange Pet Shop to find a pet, there's no knowing what he'll find there. He is very particular, and nothing at the Strange Pet Shop suits him until, at last the perfect pet comes bounding through the door! * Green/ Band 5 books offer early readers patterned language and varied characters. * Text type - A poem with predictable structure and patterned language. * At the end of the story is a poster advertising the Strange Pet Shop, which is ideal for further discussion and supporting further work outside the reading session. * Curriculum links - Citizenship: Animals and us. * This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery.


'I want a pet! I want a pet!'
But at the Strange Pet Shop, it isn

't easy to find the perfect pet. A lively rhyming text.'
