Today we read That Pesky Rat by Lauren Child. A cute story of a rat that desires to have owners, a name, and a place to live (inside).

As we continue listening to the audiobook of Charlotte’s Web, prior to watching the new DVD movie, the dc have become fascinated with Templeton the Rat. So, when I saw this book at the library I knew it would be a nice fit. The book has lots of vibrant colors and the font changes and it even shows the rat’s handwritten note for a new owner. The rat shares snippets of the lives of his other animal friends and what he likes/dislikes about their situations to drive home the point that he would like an owner. The ending is cute so I won’t provide the spoiler here, go check it out from the library and read it to your kids. šŸ™‚
