Category: Chapter Books
By Nancy Shouse, 2005
This fun-filled chapter book begins with nine-year-old Jeremy’s father telling him “Pets are a huge responsibility,” inspiring the determined Jeremy to start a petsitting business to discover the type of pet that’s best for him. Along the way Jeremy – and his parents – learn how much fun and how much work it is to have a pet. The endnote from the author cautions that Jeremy’s example is not one to be followed, and points out how Jeremy could have researched pet needs before caring for them.
