I Wanna Iguana

I Wanna Iguana
By Karen Kaufman Orloff
This is one of my favorite picture books!
A little boy begs his mother to let him get a pet Iguana. The mother and son correspond back and forth in letter form as they each plead their case both for and against owning an Iguana. (Obviously the mom is the protagonist in this story) It's whimsical illustrations and catchy letters make this book an instant classic. This book giveaway is for TWO lucky winners!
Post a comment before 8:00 AM on Friday morning to be entered to win.
(For those who may be new to my book giveaways-they are gently used and may have names written on the inside cover. But I am very picky and guarantee that each of my books has plenty of life left in them.)

All my kids would love this book since they all want a iguana.. My girls are outside all day long catching lizards. The poor lizards around here no longer have tails....
What dinner did you make last night?
