Our 4 year old loves the Arthur series and requested this one. It's a great story about responsibility but beware your child will likely starting asking for more responsibility (in hopes he/she can get a new pet!)....
Pleasant transaction, received in excellent condition. Fun and interesting books for kids 2 to 6; a rewarding experience to read with your child and once kids start to learn to read, will continue to pick up this book to look through fun pictures and learn how to read (the drawings of Marc Brown made it fun) the story itself is cute-fun-adventurous. Love the characters in the book and the drawings capture attention.
Also, on the bonus point, a great book for schoolers who are gradually learning how to read, 3-6. Love this book and its originality, authentic, originally published 1990, this book is "Golden". Would recommend.
As always Marc Brown comes through with a 5 star story! Arthur sets out to prove to his parents that he is responsible enough to care for a puppy. It doesn't always go according to plan, but it all works out in the end. Great book for a beginning reader with fabulous characters and illustrations.
