it was amazing
bookshelves: transitional-books

Summary: Gregory puts a job description on his bedroom door for the "perfect parents," and his parents are pleasantly surprised to discover that they can gladly perform a perfect parent's most important function.
Genre: Fictional Picture Book
Reading Level:Late Transitional, this book is late transitional because there are a few sentences on each page. Most pages have around 3 sentences on them. The illustrations in this book are very helpful at telling the story. The child could most likely understand the story with the illustrations only. The font Is medium size and changes location on every page.
Topic:Using your imagination, creating your own world
Curriculum Uses: Could be used as a read-aloud book for K-2 grade or an independent reading book for 1-3.
Social Issues: This book looks into the relationship of a boy and his parents. It looks at the conversations they have and the expectations each of them have.
Literary Elements: This book uses a lot of exaggerated language. The author also uses foreshadowing in the beginning of the story by saying that Gregory put a sign on the door that said he was looking for the perfect parents.
Illustrations & Text: The text and illustrations both show a lot of creativity and imagination. The pictures help to show the things in which Gregory is imagining in his head.
