WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

Wet foot. Dry foot. Low foot. High foot. Early readers will enjoy marching in time to the beat of many, many feet with Dr. Seuss’ fun exploration of opposites. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years.
This is one of my all time favorite Dr. Seuss books. I read this to my children countless times and it was one of the first books they could “read” by themselves. Many years have past since I last read this to my small children but I still have large portions of it memorized. A great way to teach a few smile opposites.
