Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
Rats and mice are two rodents that make great pets for families looking for a quiet indoor pet that is always ready to play. Some can even learn to ride around inside the house on their owner's shoulder. This informative book teaches prospective and new pet owners everything they need to know about taking care of their pet, from setting up a safe cage to picking engaging toys and play structures to training the new pet. Part of the "Getting to Know Your Pet" series, this book contains a glossary, an index, and a list of websites with further information about life with rats or mice. This book is written for the child pet-caregiver, and illustrations enhance and reinforce the information on every page. Information boxes answer common questions that new pet owners have about living with and caring for these rodents. The book also includes a section for parents, which details how parents can help their children care for the new family pet, including tips on what pet care tasks are appropriate for children, how small children interact best with rats and mice, and how to make sure the family pet stays safe and healthy. This book is a must-read for all first-time rat or mice owners. Reviewer: Jamie Hain

Gr 3-6

These books represent pet care as a commitment that is hard work but not daunting. Each volume combines tips, hints, and rules with general information about the animal, providing readers with an overall impression of their pet. Spreads include in-depth care instruction, and "Q & A" sidebars that answer common behavioral questions. While no preference is shown for pets from shops or breeders (with the exception of dogs, which should never be purchased from a store), the books all stress empathy for the animals, often asking children to question how their behavior can affect their pets. Each title finishes with a spread directed at adults. The books are intended for children to read by themselves, but it is understood that keeping a pet is a mutual endeavor and that adult help will be necessary. The layout is clear, with full color photos and illustrations breaking up the text. While not groundbreaking, this is a competent, accessible series, perfect for replacing older holdings or beefing up current collections.-Kara Schaff Dean, Needham Public Library, MA
