The Birthday Pet
by Ellen Javernick

Danny's birthday is coming up.
He wants a special pet!
Will the one he really wants,
Be the one he gets?

Here's a funny story
About his birthday presents.
His family members choose the ones
That would make them most content!

You'll like the pictures.
You'll like the rhymes.
You'll love the story
To read many times!
