Scholastic DVDs are really wonderful; children read the books and then see their favorite characters come to life on the screen. While we try to limit
screen time for our kids, the Scholastic DVD is our go-to for long car rides or long airport waits. And, we have discovered so many books through the DVDs. For example, Children Make Terrible Pets by Peter Brown is a fun, evocative story where a bear named Lucy decides a human child would be a great pet. We discovered this adorable story for 3-6 year olds through this Scholastic DVD, and many more great stories as well.
Based on the New York Times Bestseller:
Check out this rollicking, humorous, and heartwarming twist on the classic first pet story about a young bear and her favorite pet boy!
When Lucy, a young bear, discovers a boy in the woods, she’s absolutely delighted. She brings him home and begs her mom to let her keep him, even
though her mom warns, Children make terrible pets. But mom relents, and Lucy gets to name her new pet Squeaker.
Through a series of hilarious and surprising scenes, readers can join Lucy and Squeaker on their day of fun and decide for themselves whether or not children really do make terrible pets.
