The Betts family pets have got the spots! But when the vet's advice only turns the critters' spots to stripes, what will the Betts crew do next?
As kids giggle and guess their way through this riotously funny picture book's repeated refrains, they'll practice recognizing patterns, build literacy skills and see the value of perseverance. Use the silly, STEM-friendly story to talk about the importance of taking care of animals - and maybe even spark an interest in veterinary medicine!
Written by legendary British comedian Rod Hull and illustrated by Barefoot favorite Miriam Latimer, is a guaranteed hit for any animal lover.
Ages 3 to 7 years
