Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3
These books contain useful basics: supplies needed for the new kitten/puppy, setting up a feeding area, introducing newcomers to pets already in the home. Other topics include visiting the veterinarian, training a pet, and traveling with one. In each book, a boy and girl learn how to care for the animal. The cartoonlike watercolor illustrations have plenty of white space and are informational; various pet behaviors are pictured with captions. These titles have a warm, fuzzy appeal.
