This is about a classroom pet named Max that has escaped his cage. The teacher calls for the whole class to look for Max.
This is a great book for younger chldren to learn their directional words such as high, low, near, far, etc. The book has really fun pictures of the children looking for Max and with a little closer look you can see Max in every picture.
I had fun searching for Max on each page and looking for the expression on Max's little face as he hides from the children. I can so relate with the teacher and class. I have had different hamsters with each of my children and somehow each of them have escaped from their cages. Some we were never able to find. But I can say that I have looked high, low, near, far and every other place to look.
I think it would be fun to talk about the different types of classroom pet, which are good choices and which ones are not so good. It would also be good to talk about what it would you have to do to take care of the pet. Another idea would be to actually get a classroom pet.
