Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—The American Humane Association does wonderful work, protecting defenseless animals, working to control the pet population, and helping to place unwanted critters in good homes. Unfortunately, this series is so agenda driven that its appeal to children is minimal. Readers looking forward to owning a pet will find a small list of "dos" and a massive list of "don'ts," some of which have nothing to do with the targeted age range. Horse has the most egregious flaws, with such statements as "Be careful of horse auctions, bargains in the classified ads, and overeager horse dealers." "Pet Pointer" and "Fast Fact" text boxes provide helpful tidbits. While there are "Words to Know" sections, glossary words are not highlighted within the texts. The numerous captioned, color and black-and-white photos may draw in browsers and animal lovers, but however well-intentioned these books are, they're not what pet sections need.
