Kid Konnection: Pet Dad

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you an adorable picture book that is perfect for Father's Day!

Summary: Plum wants the perfect pet, but instead realizes she has the perfect dad in this charming and hilarious picture book that’s great for father’s day.

Plum wants a pet. Plum’s dad wants NO pets. So Plum, who never takes no for an answer, gets the only pet she can: a pet dad. Dad is a great pet–he loves playtime, tummy rubs, and scratches behind the ears. But every time Plum tries to get him to sit, or fetch, or chase, dad barks NO. Plum doesn’t take no for an answer. How will she train her perfect pet (without getting a time-out)?

Hilariously relatable and with ultra-cute art, Pet Dad is perfect for kids who love or want pets–or who already have the perfect parents to make up for it. -- Dial

Father's Day is right around the corner, and I have the perfect gift idea. It's the new picture book PET DAD by Elanna Allen, and it's almost too cute for words. PET DAD tells the story of Plum, a little girl who wants the perfect pet. Unfortunately for Plum, her dad wants no pets!

Plum reminds me a lot of my daughter when she was little -- she doesn't take no for an answer and she's relentless! Rather than getting a new pet, Plum decides she needs a pet dad. While dad enjoys the tummy rubs and ear scratches, he doesn't want to sit, fetch or play chase. But Plum is determined to make him into a pet... even if it means that getting into a little trouble in the process!

I adored PET DAD. The story is so cute and the illustrations are just precious! I think PET DAD is one of those books that kids and parents alike will enjoy. The story has just enough kid and adult humor to keep everyone laughing, and I do think the relationship between daddy and daughter will warm hearts.

PET DAD is a highly entertaining picture book! I definitely recommended it... especially for Father's Day.

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book.
