Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Ms. Storer, a 4-H leader and exotic animal rancher, writes an informative guide for the child about to become pet owner. Using a narrative style that directly addresses the reader, the author leads readers through all steps of dog ownership: selecting them, keeping them healthy, training and exercising them, playing with them, and even providing community service with them. It's a thorough manual that will appeal to families on the verge of dog adoption. This book is part of a series of kids' guides to animal raising that includes such titles as , "Your Goats," "Your Guinea Pig," and "Your Pony, Your Horse." The book recommends that potential pet owners first volunteer to work and play with the animals before adopting them so they can find out what it's really like to own, take care of, and be responsible for an animal.
