Summary

Summary

One little girl has a pet hamster, and she takes good care of it. She gives it fresh water and the right kind of food, she cleans its cage, and she calls it by name. Read and find out all about hamsters -- what they eat, when they sleep, and how an owner can keep her pet healthy and happy. This simple introduction to pets and pet care is also a first step into understanding animal classification, as readers learn the difference between tame and wild animals. Simple, clear language and lively art make this a treat for every child who's ever begged for a pet.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-A little girl describes buying, caring for, and playing with her pet. While simply told from a child's point of view, the narrative skillfully weaves facts about hamsters and the difference between wild and domestic animals into the story. The large, bold illustrations resemble a child's drawings. The hamster is adorable with its pink feet, pink nose, and golden fur. The last page lists four activities for enrichment. A useful title for reading aloud or independently, for enjoyment, or in beginning research.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
