Adorable book about a boy who REALLY wants an Iguana. He writes persuasive notes to his mom about why he should have an iguana and she writes back with counter arguments. All of the letters are creatively signed and the pro/con arguments are well thought out. This would make an excellent book to teach children about debate.

“I Wanna Iguana” is a funny book filled with colorful and descriptive drawings that really express the character’s feelings and opinions on the topic of a pet iguana. Alex, the main character, really wants a pet iguana, so he spends the bulk of this book trying to convince his mom to let him get one. His mother, in turn, replies to his arguments with her own, as she does not believe that she should get an iguana due to a variety of different reasons, such as the fact that Alex cannot keep his room clean. The illustrations correspond with each argument that both mother and son provide, such as when Alex’s mom asks if Alex would still want to have an iguana if it would survive until he would marry someone, and the author provides a picture of an iguana and Alex getting married. These humorous illustrations add to the overall appeal of this book to readers, as the text is not the only thing that they need to be able to understand in order to figure out what the author is trying to say/display. The main message of this book that the author is attempting to reveal to readers is that it is important to support and be persistent with what you want if you are truly passionate about something. This is especially geared towards a younger audience, as smaller children tend to be more interested in getting pets but their parents are more hesitant as they believe that they are not quite ready for that responsibility. Younger children are also much more persistent and “set in their ways” so that adds to my belief that this book would serve as a more beneficial text for them. ( )

Alex's friend, Mikey, is moving and can't take his pet iguana with him. Alex wants the iguana and is afraid that his friend, Stinky, will end up with the lizard and that will mean bad news for the iguana. To get the iguana Alex must convince his mother that he can handle having a pet, so he puts his argument into writing. This fun and witty series of argument and counter-argument letters is amusing to read and teaches students the art of writing letters and a successful argument.

I Wanna Iguana is a realistic fictional picture book that holds dialogue between a mother and son. The son is trying to persuade his mother to get an Iguana by writing her letters. The text is conversations held through back and forth letters. This book would be a book for students in second to fourth grade. I think this book has great intentions but could send a wrong message to students at a young age. The boy begs his mother for this pet while she says no and at the end surprises him. This could lead for children to think they will get anything they want if they continue to beg. He even states he would trade in his brother for this pet Iguana. I believe the book is cute but shows unrealistic expectations for children. The big idea I believe is that the boy tried his hardest each week by writing letters and being creative to try to get the pet he wanted. The mother noticed this or just wanted him to continue to write his letters. ( )
