Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This subject about pets and the people who take care of them will interest young children, parents, and teachers. The opening page asks what a veterinarian does. The text is simple with each page devoted mainly to large-scale, colorful and simple illustrations. The text and pictures together describe a veterinarian's job. Successive pages show a veterinarian listening to a pet's heart and lungs or checking eyes, ears, and teeth. Another page shows a brown and white horse being examined by a veterinarian. Writer Owen also explains that vets take care of zoo animals and wild animals such as eagles that are injured. The book also shows the importance of children taking care of their pets and working along with the veterinarian for a healthy animal. The illustrations are colorful and can be used to teach young children colors. The last pages mention interesting facts such as how Egyptians gave medical treatment to cattle, dogs and birds almost 4,000 years ago. There are tips on when a pet needs to see a vet. A glossary is provided as well as further reading and Web sites. Caring For Your Pets is a book young children and their parents will enjoy looking at together. 2004, Picture Window Books, Ages 3 to 7.

PreS-Gr 3-This title works equally well as a beginning reader and as a read-aloud for units on exploring careers or community helpers. Large, colorful, digitally prepared illustrations depict racially diverse men and women caring for a variety of animals from livestock and wildlife to small pets. A concluding "Did You Know?" section has some surprising facts about vets. An appealing and kid-friendly selection.-Carol Foreman, Elbert School, CO Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
