Overview

In this gentle and humorous springtime story, Barnaby learns the importance of responsibility and honesty when he and his friends try to convince their teacher, Mrs. Sealey, to get a class pet.

Spring has come and Barnaby is very happy. Only one thing would make him happier: having a class pet. He asks his teacher, Mrs. Sealey, but she decides the class first needs some practice. Everyone will make a pet egg. If they can show they are responsible by taking good care of their pretend pets, they will get a real class pet.

Barnaby is sure this will be easy. He already cares for a pet--his dog, Baxter. But when his egg cracks, Barnaby isn't sure what to do. Should he lie to Mrs. Sealey? In the end, Barnaby tells the truth and the class is rewarded with a wonderful real pet--a bunny.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Rouillard has written a book with a message and it is not terribly subtle. On the opening page, there is a discussion written for adults about the importance of character education. In case there is any doubt as to the purpose of the story, it is clearly spelled out in this summary and the list of activities. The kids in Barnaby's class are all excited because he has brought in his pet basset hound for show-and-tell. The pet captivates the class and they ask their teacher, Mrs. Sealey, if they can have a class pet. After thinking about it, Mrs. Sealey presents the class with some hardboiled eggs the following day and tells them to make them pets. Then she says that she wants to see how well they manage with their pretend pets before she will consider getting a real one. Everyone except Barnaby is very careful and a little nervous. He is very much self-assured because he already has a pet. Then on the way to school, he has a mishap and his pet is injured. The class fears that their chances for success have been jeopardized. Will Barnaby tell the truth, will the kids get a class pet? The suspense isn't that great, but honesty is rewarded. Using the materials enclosed, kids can make their own special pet eggs, which is the extra bonus part of the book. 2003, Scholastic,

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Barnaby, of coloring-book fame, is a sweet and cuddly bear whose friends include a frog and a giraffe, among others. In response to her students' request for a class pet, Mrs. Sealey assigns each pupil the care of a pet egg, with the promise that if they are responsible, they can get a real pet. All of the classmates care for their charges, except the overly confident cub, who admits in the end that he was careless. After careful consideration, his teacher decides to commend him on his honesty. The didactic, almost pedantic tone results in a very long read. Some pages are divided into thirds, making the format somewhat awkward; the tale is rather cumbersome. The lively artwork, suggesting the many adventures the classmates experience, has a frolicsome feel. A marginal choice.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
