NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 29

Who Wants Broccoli? by Val Jones. June 2015.

From Amazon: "Broccoli is a lovable but rambunctious dog who wants to find a home in this fetchingly fun picture book! Broccoli lives at Beezley’s Animal Shelter and loves to show off his bowl-tossing and tail-chasing skills—and especially his great big BARK!  He dreams of playing in a yard with a boy. But when a boy named Oscar comes looking for his perfect pet, Broccoli is hidden away. Will Broccoli find his perfect home?"

My thoughts: The first thing my kids laughed at in this book -- "a dog named Broccoli?!?!" (if you look closely at one of the pictures you will discover why that's his name!) Most kids go through a stage of wanting one pet or another, and many specifically want a dog. But Broccoli's antics make many families choose something else instead. Finally a family comes who is looking for a dog just like him. This is a cute book about being yourself, and is great for any animal lover.

Recommended Age: 4-8 years (but my 3-year-old liked it too)
