Overview

What makes your pet howl, yow,l and meow? Why do cats see so well in the dark? The newest entry in Lark’s favorably reviewed science series for children has the answers in a fun, fully-illustrated collection of activities that teach youngsters all about their family pets. And best of all, kids carry out the experiments with the help of the animals themselves. It’s like a game of “monkey see, monkey do” when youngsters imitate the variety of ways pets move by trying to slither, hop, and scamper. They’ll study the animal’s body language and try to understand what it’s “saying,” and test the buoyancy, strength, and water resistance of different types of hair and feathers. From dogs to fish, there's a wild world to discover.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Does your dog know how to play hide and seek? Can your cat pass a sniff test? Does your gerbil like to dig in the sand, the dirt, or in wood chips? These are the types of questions in this book, which is subtitled 50 Purr-fectly Woof-Worthy Activities for You & Your Pets. While these are experiments for the reader, the pets will consider them simply games. In the introduction, Gunter and Newcomb explain that a veterinarian has gone through all the activities and made sure they are safe for animals and children alike. The pages are organized like standard experiment books: a question or challenge, a list of necessary supplies, step-by-step instructions, and an explanation or "What's Going On?" section. Every few pages, the writers add an "Aha!" moment, a small box labeled "Aha!" that gives a piece of trivia such as "Guinea pigs aren't related to pigs. They're rodent, originally from the Andes Mountains in Peru." The book will be most easily used by children who have pets, specifically dogs and cats—though guinea pigs, snakes, gerbils, and birds make their appearances too. But do not expect anyone to find their science fair project in these pages. Most counties in the states prohibit the use of vertebrates in a science fair. However, science should be done more than just at Science Fair time, and for those other explorations, this book offers a lot. The illustrations are fun and informative. Back matter includes a glossary and an index.
