Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-A little girl describes buying, caring for, and playing with her pet. While simply told from a child's point of view, the narrative skillfully weaves facts about hamsters and the difference between wild and domestic animals into the story. The large, bold illustrations resemble a child's drawings. The hamster is adorable with its pink feet, pink nose, and golden fur. The last page lists four activities for enrichment. A useful title for reading aloud or independently, for enjoyment, or in beginning research.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
