Excellent, Preschool, Pets, Animals, Imagination
A little boy’s sister gets a pet guinea pig, but he isn’t impressed. There are way more exciting pets you can get! He wants to have a fire-breathing dragon. Or maybe brown bear with big claws and sharp teeth would be fun. Even dogs are more exciting than a guinea pig! He holds the guinea pig and it climbs up his arm with sharp little claws. Then he chases the guinea pig around the house. The guinea pig is hard to catch and even better at playing hide and go seek! He decides that maybe they aren't so bad...but he'd still like to have a dragon.
