CHILDREN MAKE TERRIBLE PETS…
AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILY
Peter Brown’s beloved children’s book arrives on the small screen as the featured story on the brand-new Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ DVD, CHILDREN MAKE TERRIBLE PETS…AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILY. In the animated tale, Lucy, a young bear, meets a charming young boy in the forest and brings him home. Her mother, however, has other ideas and cautions her that, “children make terrible pets.” Hilarity ensues as Lucy tries to prove her mother wrong in this modern classic.
