School Library JournalGr 3-5–With clear, formal writing, and extensive coverage for their size, these titles are useful for reports. They begin with introductory material such as Craats’s “What is a Gecko?” and follow with chapters covering breed specifics and care. For example, Foran’s “Guinea Pigging Out” chapter describes the pet’s eating habits, Hamilton’s “Fluffing Ferrets” provides grooming tips, and her “Turtle Behavior” includes a listing of “Pet Peeves.” Numerous colorful photographs, charts (e.g., “8 Essential Parts of the Turtle”), and question-and-answer boxes supplement the texts. Mythological, cultural, and literary references such Lomberg’s outline of the “Trojan Horse” legend are appealing extras. Follow-up quizzes, “Frequently Asked Questions” pages, and lists of organizations to contact are also included.
