School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-These informative books encourage prospective pet owners to be responsible and to find out all they can about an animal before bringing it into their homes. In Dogs, each breed is introduced with a large full-color photograph and a list of facts about cost, food, housing, and training. More detail follows on the history of the breed and on what owners can expect from their pet. The authors include the Akita, basenji, bulldog, Chihuahua, Chinese shar-pei, dachshund, greyhound, Saint Bernard, shih tzu, and fennec fox. A list of Internet sites ends each section. Pets discusses animals such as the hamster, gerbil, guinea pig, and rabbit along with rarer creatures such as the chinchilla, duprasi, and flying squirrel. These colorful introductory guides may provide the only information available on some of the more unusual species.-Denise Reitsma, Howe Library, Hanover, NH (c) Copyright 2010.
