Cave Boy had lots of things. Rocks. Sticks. A club. But no pet. Will Cave Boy ever find a pet the whole family can agree on!
Cave Boy gave Wooly a hug.
"Me wish you could stay, pal."
Then Cave Boy tried again.
He searched high and low until...
a saber-toothed tiger!
Cave Boy and Toothy raced home.
Me want pet!"
"Achoo-ga!" sneezed Papa.
"Make me sneeze! No can stay."
Why I liked this book:
This adorable funny book was a gift to me by the gracious Corey Rosen Schwartz. At first I read the title and thought to myself, this is book will probably not make the cut with my class but I will give it a try. What is that old saying? Don't judge a book by it's cover...oh so true! haha. The story line is so simple but the dialogue is hilarious. Truly a funny book that will tickle your funny bone and sure to make you laugh!
Critique from Calhoon Magnet School
" I like this book because it was funny when he talked like a baby. A text-to-self-connection that I made was when my sister wants something she will talks like the cave boy, me want pet, no can stay, make me sick! My favorite part was when the granny said,"he no potty trained he no stay!"
"This book is about a little cave boy that has everything he needs but what he really wants is a pet. He tries a mammoth, too big. He tries a sabertooth tiger-makes dad sneeze, a dodo bird-not potty trained.
But when a stampede hurts his family the pets come to the rescue. He doesn't have one, he has three. I like this book because the kid gets what he wants. This book made me feel funny because when I was a trying to find out what pet I was going to get I was always told no but I finally got a dog."
And the whole class chanted," that's the way uh huh...uh huh, we like it uh huh! " ! This book gets double thumbs up from Calhoon Magnet 2nd graders!
