Children's LiteratureHave you ever wanted to own an exotic pet, but you realize that you do not have a lot of time to care for an animal? Then a gecko may be a good choice for you. Geckos are exotic and do not require as much time to take care of as a dog or a cat. This is an excellent book for children who are learning about geckos or for those thinking about purchasing a gecko. It is well organized and contains interesting photographs of all types of geckos, terrariums, and the food geckos eat. Different types of geckos are noted as well as the most popular ones to own. Each gecko has its own personality so it is important to have an idea of the gecko's personality before making a purchase. The different body parts of a gecko are explained so owners can know how to take care of its needs. There is even a section on how to hold a gecko so they will not be harmed. The book also contains information about what should go into the terrarium to make sure your gecko stays healthy and happy. Caring for Your Gecko is part of the "Caring for your Pet" series. 2004, Weigl Publishers Incorporated, Ages 7 to 8.
