This Week’s K and 1st Grade Book

This Week's K and 1st Grade Book

This week’s book for K and 1st grade is Sparky by Jenny Offill and illustrated by Chris Appelhans. In this book a very clever girl gets around her mother’s very strict rules about owning a pet. The pet must require no feeding, no bathing, and no walking. After doing some research in the school library, the girl discovers that a sloth is the perfect pet, and wont break any of mom’s rules. But having the slowest and laziest pet in the world might not be as exciting as the girl first thought, and it may take some time for the girl to accept Sparky for exactly who he is.

If you loved this book and would like to learn more about sloths, check out this great non-fiction science book we have in the libary!
