Young pet owners won't go wrong with these well-organized guides. Each one places its subject within the context of its wild roots and its relationship to humans. From there, Barnes explains what makes the animal an ideal pet, recommends how to be a good caregiver, and reveals how the creature communicates (as well as how to answer). The books mix practical advice with trivia in a way that children will find informative and easy to navigate. Crisp, full-color photos enhance the texts. Ideal for expanding pet-care sections or replacing older titles.
