I Spy Pets book cover

Rhyme:  I went to the pet store (with puppets)
I went to the pet store and made a special wish.
The pet that I wanted was a very special (fish)!
I went to the pet store, I went there at a jog,
To get a pet with a wagging tail, it was a little (dog)!
I went to the pet store, it had become a habit.
The pet I wanted now was a soft, fluffy (rabbit)!
I went to the pet store, I’m sure this sounds absurd,
But the pet I wanted was a colorful flying (bird)!
I went to the pet store, it was no mistake.
What I really wanted now was a hissing green (snake)!
