The first thing that I noticed about this book was its' font: it was the perfect size and was pleasing to the eye. The book was based upon the author's own second hand knowledge of a teacher's classroom filling-up with pets from her students bringing them in for show-and-tell and then leaving them in the classroom. It was, as the inside flap read, about a gentle and patient teacher, one that I hope to be. I think this would be a good reminder book for me to read when I do become a teacher to let ...more

A teacher invites her students to bring their pets in each Monday for sharing day, but by the end of the year, she has a classroom full of "forgotten" animals.

I think students would love this book. Their imaginations could run wild thinking about what really might happen if all those animals stayed in their classroom. What would they be doing at night when everyone in the school went home? If that was their classroom, what might they bring to show and tell? The possibilities are endless!

Cynthia Rylant applies a simple moral to this great children’s book. Without making it obvious, she lets the children know that is better to face your fears than to walk away from them all together. The pictures are bright colorful. The hues of pink and use flowers everywhere make this book especially attractive for girls. The book is an easy read and great for children who are learning to read. There are only a few words on each page. This creates a less intimidating challenge for beginning re ...more

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun story of a menagerie of pets that visits Miss Fry's classroom. They are too inconvenient at home, so Miss Fry allows her class to leave them in the classroom until the end of the school year. I don't like that it demonstrates parents not taking responsibility for their household pets, but it's a fun story anyway. The animal noises and sheer variety of animals are delightful and the illustrations are engaging.

I feel like a lot of kids love animals and this book is great for kids. I love the idea of all these kids bringing all these different animals to their classroom and just leaving them with the teacher. It's so unlikely and funny. It's just a silly story and you can tell the kids all the different sounds of the animals too. I also liked how in the end the teacher ended up with the cricket as her own pet.
