   A Must Read!
My 1 st graders are able to read this book. I'm very happy to be away from Junie B. She is looking forward to finding out what happened at the end. Her engagement is a good recommendation for this book. Cynthia Lord knows how to appeal to younger readers. It would be a great read- aloud for young students.
   ... a Guinea pig named jelly bean who looks just like a jelly bean in the book
We have a pig named Jelly bean who looks like a bean in the book. I gave my son this book as a present because he was so excited about it.
   I Want a Pet! Great Way to Problem Solve!
The third graders love this book. The author included true facts about the animals in the back of the book.
   Good quality chapter book
My daughter is in kindergarten and we are reading chapter books before bed. We took a break from the Junie B. series to try this one because she likes animals. Junie B. kept her attention more than she did. The pace, dialogue and vocabulary were great as a mom. There were a lot of good facts about how to properly take care of animals, and the main character was developed nicely. I think students in 2 nd grade might enjoy reading this on their own, rather than having a younger child read it to them. We really liked the illustrations.
   My 7-year old loved it!
I have a 7- year old who likes books. I gave this to her when she was 7. A lot of things sneak into children's books that I wouldn't want her to read. This is absolutely safe. There is nothing scary or controversial. There is a sweet, clean kids story that sets good examples. Exactly what I would want for her. She read the whole thing in three days. She wants the other two to be in the series now. The story is about a girl who can't have pets of her own, so she gets involved helping out at a shelter, making friends with both kids and animals in the process. An extra section detailing how to make some of the treats for animals that were talked about in the book is included. This is a great choice for kids in that age range, and parents can rest easy as there is nothing to worry about in these pages. I highly recommend it.
   Great read for a young animal lover
The local school district suggested the series to be on a summer reading list. The realistic relationship situations allow a child to observe ways to get along with others and work through the need for independence in early elementary school. The activity in each book that allows a child to make a toy for a pet is a wonderful addition. I hope there will be more books written in this series.
   Should look new
A student received a book. The back cover has a small bend and tear, but it should have looked brand new. It was bad to give a gift that looked like it was going to be used.
   Wonderful book for pet lovers
The book gives practical advice on how to care for animals. It promotes a positive affect on the world.
   Shelter Pet Squad-Jelly Bean, by Cynthia Lord
Cynthia Lord's Shelter Pet Squad books were the perfect gift for the little girl who invited birthday party guests to bring items for the animal shelter instead of for her
