School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These texts are easy to read, with less-familiar words in bold type and defined in the glossary, and the format breaks the material into "bites" that makes it inviting to newly independent readers. Each volume is comprised of paragraphs no more than three sentences long, accompanied by large numerals in a variety of bright colors. The facts are loosely grouped by subject, giving readers an overview of each area of interest. Clear, full-color photos appear throughout, and colorful borders decorated with animal-footprint designs add to the visual appeal. Terrarium Pets looks at reptiles, amphibians, and tarantulas, and a wider range of care situations but offers fewer details than Ferrets, which has more depth due to its narrower scope. These are not pet-care manuals. Instead, they are good starting points, providing enough information to help readers make well-informed decisions about whether or not the subject animals would make appropriate pets for them.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
