with a title like Parent’s For Sale. All I knew is it was a kid’s story and since I have a kid I thought she might enjoy me reading it to her.
Parent’s For Sale has amazing illustrations. They are colorful and really help kids relate to the story. What you see in the illustration is exactly what is happening while I am reading it. So the short version of the book is there a two kids – twins, and they own a dog. Well the twins are not so great about taking care of the dogs so their parents tell them they are selling the dog. But the twins have plans on their own. They decide to switch dog for sale sign for a parents for sale sign. The story tells of all the different groups that try to buy the twins parents and in the end they sold their parents! But it was a trick. The dog saves the day and mom and dad come home to find out what the twins have done.
It’s a cute story. Lots more twist and turns than I stated but I didn’t want to give it away. It is broken up in to chapters but each chapter is like a page. But be sure to set aside time to read it. With everything that happens in the story and all the great pictures you are going to want to take your time and really enjoy it.
