What Pet Should I Get?

Written and Illustrated by Dr. Seuss

Publisher’s Synopsis: This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!
Told in Dr. Seuss’s signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds.
An Editor’s Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss’s pets, his creative process, and the discovery of the manuscript and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get?

  • I was so excited to purchase this book on release day. As a kindergarten teacher, our classroom shelves are filled with Dr. Seuss books. What made this one even more exciting was realizing that all of my kinders who learn their sight words this year should be able to read this book on their own by the end of the year. Even more fun is the fact that we do a pet unit a few weeks into the school year so I get to share the excitement of this new book in just a few weeks with 18 new kinder-bears who are just being introduced to this amazing author.
