Book Review Of “Can I Keep It” By Lisa Jobe @LisaJobeStudio @PageStreetKids

“Mom, if a frog follows me home, can I keep it?”
One summer day, a boy ventures into his backyard on a mission to find the perfect pet. When he asks to keep the animals that happened to “follow” him home, his mom points out that birds belong in the sky and frogs belong in the pond. He starts to wonder: is there an animal that belongs right there with him? In a heartwarming conclusion, he discovers the perfect pet has been around him all along.
Readers of all ages will giggle at the sly sense of humor, and adults will love how the mother’s questions encourage empathy. Lively illustrations and dialogue play off each other with a sly sense of humor as the boy learns to walk in someone else’s shoes―or paws.

Thank you Page Street Kids for gifting us this book in exchange of an honest review.

This is such a cute book. charming illustrations, short story, and does a great job of teaching kids we should leave wild animals where we find them. My boys have a cat, so they loved seeing the little orange stray cat pop up through out the book.

My boys really liked this story, and immediately asked me to re-read it. So that’s a hit in my book!
