A very short book, this is an easy read for kids or pet lovers. It is a bit of a bummer, reminding us that pets aren't dolls to be thrown away. Pets need to be LOVED forever. They are part of the family! The illustrations are very cute, and my favorite was the parakeet sleeping, since I have 4 keets myself.

A short but sweet book that is a reminder of how we should love and appreciate our pets. I read this to my 3 yr old grandson and he loved the illustrations. Colorful and simple enough for the youngest pet lovers to learn how to treat our beloved family members.

I received this book for free to review. I absolutely loved this children's book! The illustrations were great. I was continuously saying "awww" with all the sad pets faces. This would be a great book for kids to learn how to treat pets.

Sadly, a bit on the preachy side. A pet lover, however, most likely will love this
