I Want a Pet by Cathy Morrison. One morning a little boy decides he wants a pet, but not just any pet will do. After gathering some items he heads for the zoo in search of the perfect pet. He finds a giraffe but decides it’s too tall, the cheetah is too fast, the turtle is too slow, the gorilla is too hairy, and the crocodile is just plain too scary! He sits on the ground and begins to cry when he finally notices the dog that has followed him all day. He thinks this one is just right as he cuddles his new found friend in his bed that night!
