Booktalk #1

How many of you have pets?  What kind of pets do you have?  It seems as if dogs and cats are the most common pets.  Do you take your pet for walks?  What if you had a snake?

Booktalk #2

Raise your hand if you have a pet at home?  Do you take your pet with on errands? Well, beware of taking unusual pet to places where people go.  Can you just imagine a skunk on an airplane, a moose at the movies or frogs at dinner? With Karin Irelandís lovely rhyming text and David Catrowís irresistible illustrations, you wonít want to miss Donít Take Your Snake for a Stroll!  (Prepared by: Lisa Conrath, SCASL Picture Book Awards)
