    This book was a nice book to entertain kids. It started out with a man and his dog but he flet the nedd to switch his dog for something more useful that he could use. So he sapped him for various animals and he ended up finding a problem with all of them so end the end he got his dog back which is what he truly wanted. This is a nice book for kids to discover the true meaning of friendship. The pictures were also clever and colorful.

    This book is about man who always seems to want more out of an animal and keeps swapping the animals around to find something he likes until he realizes that having his dog was what he wanted all along.I would use this book to teach children to not take what you have for granted and to just be happy with what you do have, rather than unhappy for what you don't have.

    I loved this book! It's a great book to read to younger children when teaching about animals. It's also a great book to talk about conflict with yourself. The man wants the perfect pet, and realizes he had it all along.

    Really fun iambic and anapestic rhythms! This accompanied by its rhymes makes this book an easy, enjoyable read.

    A rhyming circular story about a farmer who keeps trading one farm animal for another. A fun preschool read aloud which will also be good for making predictions.

    this story teaches the lesson that you always want what you don't have. you should be happy with what you've got because other things are not how you think they are.
